KUED Teacher Innovation Awards – December 31 Deadline
KUED, Utah's Largest Classroom, is proud to recognize outstanding educators in Utah. Celebrate teachers in your community by nominating them today. KUED will recognize five educators, grades PreK-12, at this year's KUED Teacher Innovation Awards.
Last year, five educators were recognized for using digital media in the classroom. This year we are expanding the call to any educator who is using innovative classroom techniques. Winning teachers will be featured in a KUED documentary, highlighted in a Salt Lake Tribune article, and will receive a cash prize at the awards ceremony and banquet.
