(Bismarck, ND) -- The North Dakota Department of Public Instruction (NDDPI) is asking state residents to submit their nominations for the 2022 County Teacher Award.
For each of the 53 counties within North Dakota, the NDDPI is seeking your input. The department is looking for "outstanding" classroom K-12 teachers. Once the 53 nominees are selected, they will be asked to apply for the North Dakota Teacher of the Year award.
Last year, 40 of North Dakota’s 53 counties submitted nominations for County Teachers of the Year. State School Superintendent Kirsten Baesler says it's the department’s goal is to have candidates from all 53 counties.
“Our teachers provide excellent education to their students, particularly during this time of COVID-19 pandemic issues,” Baesler said in a statement. “This is a great way for North Dakotans to honor teachers who are doing heroic work to prepare students for their future.”
You can nominate your favorite teacher by completing a short form here on the North Dakota Department of Public Instruction's website.
