The first winner will be announced in the first week of October and each week through the end of the school year.
Parents and students can go to mdjonline.com to nominate a teacher. Click on the “Apple for Teachers” icon and complete the online nomination form. The Marietta Daily Journal staff will select a winner from the nominations each week and present the iPad to the winner. A photo of the weekly winner and their students will appear in the Marietta Daily Journal and online each week.
Teachers from all public and private schools, in kindergarten through 12th grade, will be eligible to win.
“We’re thrilled to be able to join with our friends at Superior Plumbing on this project, which will be a small token of our appreciation and support of all the hardworking teachers in Cobb County,” said Otis Brumby III, publisher of the Marietta Daily Journal.
The online application will ask for the teacher’s name, school, grade or level of specialty, nominator’s name and nominator’s email.
Nominators will also need to write a brief statement of 100 words or less explaining why they believe the teacher deserves to be one of the MDJ’s and Superior Plumbing’s “Apple for your Teacher” weekly winners.
