Celebrating 30 years!

2023 marks 30 years for the Golden Apple Awards in Greater Green Bay. After being inspired by a recognition event in Florida to honor teachers, Donald J. Long, Sr., founder of Imperial Inc. (now Imperial Supplies), began to lay the groundwork for the Golden Apple Awards in 1986. Thanks to his perseverance, the first Golden Apple Awards was hosted in 1993 in Green Bay. This event is one of only three recognition events of its kind nationwide, and with our partnership with WLUK FOX 11, is televised locally.
