Would you like to thank a teacher who made a difference in your life? Here is a wonderful way to provide a recognition that teacher will never forget.

For the 22nd year, the University of Kentucky College of Education is hosting an event for members of the public to honor a teacher, professor, principal or other education professional who has made a difference. The nominated teachers do not have to be graduates of UK or even residents of the Commonwealth of Kentucky.

This year’s program will take place at 9:30 a.m. Saturday, April 18, 2020, in the Woodford Reserve Club at Kroger Field. Nominate a teacher by March 15 via our contact form.

There is no specific selection process for the program. The event is to simply recognize educators who made a positive impact on the lives of their students. However, the number of honorees to be recognized is limited, so organizers ask that nominators limit recognition to one educator per year.

Visit the Frequently Asked Questions page for more information about the program.
