Why the Golden Apple Awards exist

We recognize that quality education is instrumental in the success of the Greater Green Bay area and have created an avenue that celebrates those within the educational field who contribute exceptional work towards educational attainment.

Who the Golden Apple Awards celebrate 

Eight recipients (individuals and/or teams) are selected through a multi-level screening of anonymous applications from a pool of nominees and teacher applications.

2022 - Golden Apple Awards Kickoff

In promoting safe practices in our schools, community and volunteers, this year’s Golden Apple Awards program kickoff was supported virtually. During the first full 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. 

Thank you to our

Golden Apple Major Sponsors are Associated Bank, Fox 11, Green Bay Packaging George Kress Foundation, Green Bay Press-Gazette, Imperial Supplies, JBS, M3 Insurance, Schneider and UnitedHealthcare
