We’re Looking For West Virginia Teachers Who Go Above And Beyond

Above And Beyond - Nominate An Exceptional West Virginia Teacher to receive a prize pack, including monetary award

Nominations are open for West Virginia Public Broadcasting’s Above And Beyond award, which recognizes and rewards excellence and creativity in teaching.

A West Virginia teacher is chosen each month to be surprised and rewarded for his or her ingenuity in — and in the case of potential coronavirus lock-down situations — out of the classroom.

To be eligible, teachers must hold a current West Virginia teaching certification through the West Virginia Department of Education and currently be teaching. Teachers may be nominated by adults. Minors may work with an adult to submit a nomination. Self-nominations also are permitted. The nomination form will remain open and online throughout the year. Twelve teachers per year will be chosen by a selection committee. Additional references and information may be requested during the selection process.
