2018-19 School Year

Do you have a teacher who should be recognized for excellence in the classroom?
For more than 20 years, WGVU Public Media has been proud to feature dedicated, creative and resourceful teachers who work hard each day to have a positive impact in the lives of their students and within their communities. We love hearing their stories and having the opportunity to visit their classrooms!

Your teacher could be WGVU’s next Cool Teacher!
WGVU learns about these Cool Teachers because of thoughtful students who take the time to let us know about their teachers! So, WGVU KIDS, keep those nominations coming and enter your teacher today! Winning entries qualify for a class party with WGVU Public Media.
New this year: Open to Grade Pre-K to Grade 12!

Submissions will be accepted through April 1, 2019.
