Who is your
Dedicated Teacher?

What are the Dedicated Teacher Awards?

All around the world teachers do fantastic work. They play a vital role in the lives of their students, and often make a difference without even knowing it. The Dedicated Teacher Awards are a global competition in which people can nominate teachers and together we can say a well-deserved thank you.

After the nomination period, our judging panel of education experts choose six finalists. The six finalist are put to a public vote and you decide on the most dedicated teacher!
