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.

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.
