Teacher Appreciation Week

Celebrate Teacher Appreciation Week May 6-10, 2024

Ohio’s public school teachers are the heart of our schools and our communities. They give their very best to their students every day, even in the face of challenges and hardships. This Teacher Appreciation Week, join the Ohio Education Association in saying thank you for all Ohio’s public school teachers do, and stand with OEA to demand the support they need and the respect they deserve. Use the hashtags #ThankATeacher and #OhioLovesTeachers on social media as you share the stories of exceptional educators who have impacted your life or your child’s life.

Parents and students, tell us about a great teacher making a big impact using the form below to enter that teacher into a drawing for an all-inclusive resort stay courtesy NEA Member Benefits, science kits from COSI, or other great prizes. You can even win a pizza party for your class when you nominate a great teacher in your life!

This year, we’re also asking parents and public school graduates to record a short video sharing their thoughts about what makes the teacher they’re nominating so awesome. We’ll share these videos on our social media pages throughout the month of May to show Ohio’s teachers how loved they are. Plus, each teacher you talk about in one of these videos will get a bonus entry into the drawing for the Teacher Appreciation Week prizes.

The nomination deadline is May 12, 2024. Please use the form below.

You must be at least 18 years old to record a Soapboxx video to go with your nomination to create the additional entry into the prize drawing.

Nominations are now closed, watch for the reveal of the contest winners!
