Each year, the Greater Green Bay Chamber’s Golden Apple Awards program strives to improve the awareness of the quality of education in the Greater Green Bay area. We do so by recognizing high standards of professionalism, leadership and innovation in teaching.
Why the Golden Apple Awards exist
Each year, the Golden Apple Awards program improves community awareness of the quality of education in the Greater Green Bay area by recognizing high standards of professionalism, leadership and innovation in teaching with the Golden Apple Awards.
Who the Golden Apple Awards celebrate
Nine recipients (individuals and/or teams) are selected annually through a multi-level screening of anonymous applications and personal interviews from a pool of nominees and then teacher applicants. Selection criteria are based on the National Board for Professional Teaching standards, which identify the essential knowledge, skills and dispositions expected of experienced, quality teachers.
In promoting safe practices in our schools, community and volunteers, this year’s Golden Apple Awards program kickoff was supported virtually. During the first week of October, communication and an extensive social media push shared a kickoff video, produced by WLUK FOX 11, to highlight the value of area educators, ask students to think about how their teachers inspire, encourage and help them grow and introduce the nomination process and due dates.
