Deadline Extended: Nominate an Outstanding Teacher for Ohio Teacher of the Year

The 2023 Ohio Teacher of the Year nominations are open February 1 through April 29, 2022.

More than an award, the Ohio Teacher of the Year program elevates the teaching profession by identifying exceptional teachers, celebrating their effective, inspiring work both inside and outside of the classroom and providing opportunities for professional growth, leadership and advocacy.

Nominees must hold a professional Ohio educator license, work full-time with a minimum of five years of teaching experience in a state-approved public school, community school or career center. They also must work directly with students at least 50 percent of the time, have no previous recognition with the Ohio Teacher of the Year program, and plan to continue in active teaching status.

Anyone may nominate a teacher. School administrators, colleagues, community members, parents or students may submit a nomination for one or multiple teachers from a district or school building. (Self-nominations are not accepted)
