FM100.3’s “Best In Class” Teacher appreciation campaign wants to recognize the incredible ways that our Utah educators go above and beyond their duties as teaching professionals.

Submit a short 500 word or less essay on how the teacher you nominated has made an important positive impact–either personal, academic, or inspirational on a student’s or your life. We honor a variety of teachers who embody the many different ways that teachers are changing lives every day in Utah.


Who can you nominate?
Utah Classroom teachers of any subject currently teaching in grades K-12, full-time or part-time, at any type of school (public, public charter, or private, for example) in the United States.

Submission finalists are based on the following criteria (“Judging Criteria”): (1) an exceptional act of leadership (34%); (2) demonstrating outstanding virtue or selflessness (34%); and (3) inspiring greatness in their school or local community (32%).

Once the Judges select each Winner the Teacher will be contacted by the Station to confirm the accuracy of all the information provided in the Submission. Once the accuracy of the Submission is confirmed, the Teacher must provide consent and a photograph (photograph criteria listed below) of the Winner for the Submission to be eligible to receive the prize.

How has your teacher changed your life (or your child’s life)?
Please be specific! Include as many actual conversations and moments as you can.
