Since 2003, KAKE has presented more than 600 Golden Apple awards honoring teachers in KAKEland who are making a positive difference in our schools. This program gives local teachers community-wide recognition for the creative ways they support, motivate and encourage a lifetime of learning, in and out of the classroom.
Recipients are featured every Friday on KAKE News at 4 p.m., where they receive the prestigious Golden Apple Award, along with hundreds of dollars in school supplies and gift cards!
Eligible nominees include Pre-K through 12th-grade teachers in the KAKE viewing 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.
