Frequently Asked Questions:

Q: I applied last year and was not selected. May I reapply?

A: Yes. Please complete and return an application.

Some teachers apply many times before being selected

because there are so many great teachers. Nominees

are encouraged to retain a copy of their Application and

re-submit an updated Nomination/Application packet.


Q:  Is there any flexibility in the application deadline?

A: Due to the selection process, we regret that we cannot

extend the application deadline. Past applicants tell us

that the biggest challenge is getting the Letters of

and get them back before completing the application.
