Teacher of the Year nominations open

Share on

Nominations are now open for the 2023 Minnesota Teacher of the Year award, and remain open through Nov. 15.

Nominations can be submitted online by accessing a simple nomination form on www.educationminnesota.org.

Eligible nominees must meet these criteria:

  • Teach in a public or nonpublic pre-K through 12th-grade school or ECFE or Adult Basic Education program, working at least 50 percent of the time directly with students.
  • Hold a bachelor’s degree and a Minnesota teaching license.
  • Have completed at least five full years of teaching by the nomination deadline.
  • Intend to teach in Minnesota during the 2024-25 school year.

The Minnesota Teacher of the Year is in its 60th year as the state’s official recognition program honoring excellence in education.

Education Minnesota organizes and underwrites the program, which means the union handles only the business of running the program, not the selection process.

Program and award support also comes from Education Minnesota ESI, Educators Lifetime Solutions, EFS Advisors, the Harvard Club of Minnesota Foundation and Expedition Credit Union.
