Since 2003, KAKE News and our partners have awarded over 400 Golden Apple Awards honoring Wichita-area educators who are making a positive difference in our local schools. With this program, these teachers receive community wide recognition for the creative ways they support, motivate and encourage a lifetime of learning, in and out of the classroom.
Weekly winners are featured on KAKE News every Saturday night at 6:00 PM and receive $250 from Papa John's Pizza along with a pizza party for their classroom; their photo in Davis Moore advertisements and of course, the prestigious Golden Apple trophy.
Eligible nominees include Pre-K through 12th grade teachers in the Wichita-area who inspire and motivate students to great heights in education. We’re looking for individuals who demonstrate creative teaching, develop programs for our youth and/or any other activities that add greater value to learning and/or have an exceptional attitude despite adversity.
To nominate a teacher who currently teaches Pre-K through grade 12, get an official entry form to print, visit any Wichita Papa Johns Pizza, or enter online and follow nomination instructions.
