2013-14 Golden Apple Awards

Note: The deadline to receive applications for the WGEM Golden Apple Awards is May 1. After May 1, we cannot guarantee that an application will be viewed or considered for the final apple, which will be decided on and presented in May.


WGEM continues the tradition of rewarding area educators with our Golden Apple Awards.

Since 1986, we've looked for those who have made a difference in the lives of their students and have made a mark on our community.

Every month this school year, WGEM News will honor an outstanding tri-states teacher. Does your teacher go the extra mile and inspire others to be better students or teachers?

Let us know by filling out the form below. Each month, WGEM's Lesley Van Ness will present one Golden Apple Award.
