The eighth annual Coconino County 2020 Teacher of the Year and Rookie Teacher of the Year Award nominations are open.
The awards are a countywide celebration that honors and recognizes full- time teachers.
The Coconino County Education Service Agency invites the public to nominate outstanding teachers in Coconino County. Nomination forms can be found on the Superintendent’s website at www.coconino.az.gov/celebrate. Nominations must be received by 5 p.m. on Nov. 5.
Teachers must be nominated to be considered for either award. If nominated, teachers submit a detailed essay application with letters of support. A panel of five judges will score the applications using a rubric and discussion to determine the top six candidates in each category. The top six candidates will then be interviewed. Judges will score the interviews with another rubric to determine the three finalists in each category.
All finalists will be recognized at the awards event in the spring and will receive cash prizes. The Teacher of the Year will receive an automatic nomination for the Arizona Teacher of the Year Award and other prizes. The event is made possible through sponsorships by businesses and community members
