Students aged 14 and younger can nominate their favorite teacher by filling out a nomination form at any Ivar’s or Kidd Valley location or filling out a form online. The two winning teachers will receive $500 for classroom supplies and the students that nominated the teachers will receive either a classroom chowder party or a Kidd Valley burger party.
In addition to the two Teachers of the Year grand prizes, the contest will also award four teachers first prize of a $150 gift card for school supplies, and 30 teachers will receive second prize of a $25 Ivar’s or Kidd Valley gift card.
Ivar’s and Kidd Valley’s ninth annual Teacher of the Year contest was inspired by heart-warming stories of teachers’ positive contributions in and out of the classroom. As in previous years, the contest seeks to honor educators that go above and beyond the call of duty to teach, mentor and support their students.
Full rules are available here. Nominations must be received by Sunday, May 20, 2012.
