Tips for nominating your teacher 

1. Think about your favourite teacher. It is one nomination per person, so make sure you tell us about the teacher that means the most to you.

2.Tell us about a specific time your teacher did something special for you. We love examples, so make sure you describe what your teacher did and why it meant so much to you. We know that your teacher is a superstar - tell us why!

3. Keep it short. We bet you could talk about your favourite teacher for days, but remember that we will only accept written nominations of 150 words, or video nominations of 2 minutes max. 

4. Share your nomination with your teacher - it will make their day! The reason we run the awards is to bring a bit of joy to teachers, so make sure you share you nomination with them either before or after you submit it.
