1 teacher 300FRANKFORT, Ky. (3/20/13) – Nominations are now open for the 2014 Kentucky Teacher Awards, sponsored by the Kentucky Department of Education and Ashland Inc.
 
Nominations may be submitted electronically by visiting the 2014 Kentucky Teacher of the Year website, kentuckytoy.com. The deadline for nominations is May 15.
 
Any full-time public school teacher in the state with at least three years of experience is eligible. Additional qualifications are cited on the application. Students, parents, teaching peers, principals, superintendents or anyone from the community who has an interest in honoring an outstanding educator may nominate a teacher for this award.
 
All nominated teachers are required to complete a formal application, which must be submitted by June 30. A blue ribbon panel of education professionals from around the state will judge the applications in August; up to 24 Ashland Inc. Teacher Achievement Award winners will be announced in September.
 
Following site visits with nine semifinalists in September and personal interviews with the top three candidates, the Kentucky Teacher of the Year will be announced in Frankfort. At that time, all 24 teachers will be honored with cash awards and other mementos. Teacher Achievement Award winners will receive a cash gift of $500; two of the three finalists will receive a cash gift of $3,000; and the Teacher of the Year will receive a cash prize of $10,000, along with an exciting professional development opportunity. The Kentucky Teacher of the Year will represent the state in the National Teacher of the Year competition.
 
The Kentucky Teacher Awards program combines the best elements of the Ashland Inc. Teacher Achievement Awards and the Kentucky Teacher of the Year programs. This is the 13th year for this innovative collaboration between private industry and public education.
