Golden Apple Foundation Kicks Off Teacher Award Nominations

They're under paid, over worked and are some of the most influential people in our kids lives who are these people? Teachers! And today the Golden Apple Foundation said thank you.

Today volunteers along with 23News anchor Bryan Henry handed more than 57-hundred apples to area teachers. "Apple Day" marks the opening of nominations for the Golden Apple Teacher Award. If you have a 6th through 12th grade teacher that you think goes above and beyond the call of duty, nominate them.

All you have to do is pick up a nomination form at Boone or Winnebago county schools. The five winners will be announced in March.
