Have you ever had a teacher who has changed your life and made you want to learn? Now you can give something back to that someone who has given you so much.
BI-LO and WMBF News want to reward the teachers who are going above and beyond the standard teaching methods. Each week, an area teacher will be selected to receive the Golden Apple Award and profiled Thursday's on WMBF News. These weekly winners will be selected from your nominations by a panel of judges. At the end of the school year, a Teacher of the Year will be chosen from the weekly winners.
Winners will be profiled Thursday's at 5:30pm on WMBFNews, and will also receive a $25 gift certificate and gift basket from BI-LO! One teacher will win $500 at the end of the year. Visit BI-LO online
