Give Your Favorite Teacher an Apple Contest

As part of National Teacher Appreciation Week, we’re giving you a chance to thank an exceptional teacher. And to show our appreciation, we’ll select a teacher from all submissions received to win an Apple iPad Pro!

We owe a lot to our exceptional educators. They spend their time and talents every day shaping the minds of those who will go on to shape the future. In the face of the COVID-19 pandemic, teachers have worked even harder to ensure every student has the tools they need to reach their full potential.

Education is in our roots. TCU was founded by teachers back in 1931, and we're still committed to promoting education and connecting with teachers in our communities. We created this contest to honor teachers for the many sacrifices they’ve made to support their students.

You can use the form below to nominate your favorite K-12 teacher and enter them into a drawing to win a sweet Apple iPad Pro! Let us know what sets your favorite teacher apart and how have they gone the extra mile for their students, their school and their community. There's even space for you to leave a personal message that we'll deliver on your behalf!
