Nomination Form: 2022 Kentucky Teacher of the Year
The Kentucky Department of Education and Valvoline Inc., sponsors of the Kentucky Teacher Awards, have opened nominations for the 2022 Kentucky Teacher Awards.

The deadline for nominations is Feb. 20, 2021. Any full-time public school teacher in the state with at least three years of experience is eligible. Teachers may be nominated by students, parents, teaching peers, principals, superintendents or anyone from the community who has an interest in honoring an outstanding educator.

All nominated teachers must complete a formal application and submit it by Feb. 20. A blue-ribbon panel of education professionals from around the state will judge all applications in March. Up to 24 Valvoline Teacher Achievement Award winners will be announced in spring 2021. The top nine contenders from those 24 will receive additional evaluations, which will culminate in the selection of the 2022 Kentucky Teacher of the Year.

The Kentucky Teacher of the Year will be announced in Frankfort. At that time, all 24 teachers will be honored with a cash prize and other awards. Teacher Achievement Award winners will receive a cash gift of $500 each; two of the three finalists will receive $3,000; and the Kentucky Teacher of the Year will receive $10,000, along with the opportunity to represent Kentucky in the 2022 National Teacher of the Year competition.

Now in its 21st year, the Kentucky Teacher Awards program is a collaboration between private industry and public education.
