In 1991, 3TV created the Silver Apple Award to recognize outstanding teachers who have made a difference in the lives of their students. Each year, hundreds of teachers are nominated from across the state of Arizona by thousands of students. Each entry is read and considered by our expert judging panel comprised of educators and community leaders. The judging panel then awards eight Arizona teachers the Silver Apple award along with $500 for use in their classroom.

Any student enrolled in kindergarten through 12th grade in an Arizona school may nominate their teacher. To nominate a teacher the student must complete the nomination form, have it signed by their school principal and then either mail or fax it back to 3TV by March 1, 2013 by 5 p.m.
