2010 Hermes Gold Award Winner

Golden Apple Award

The Education Foundation Golden Apple program was created to recognize and honor teachers who have made an impact on their students, either academically or personally.  Each year, teachers from across Roanoke County Public Schools are nominated by students, parents, co-workers and administrators to receive the Golden Apple Award, the highest award presented to a teacher by the Education Foundation.  In addition, one teacher from the elementary, middle and high school levels is presented the Red Apple Award; and one teacher who has taught less than 3 years will receive the Green Apple.

Nominations will be accepted from January 2, 2014 through January 31, 2014.

All nominees will be notified and asked to complete an application, which is due by February 14, 2014.  Videos will be due by March 21, 2014 from chosen finalists.  All nominees are invited to attend the Golden Apple Award Celebration, scheduled for April 16, 2014, where we will announce the winners.


The award will be given to a teacher who has demonstrated accomplishments in the classroom and/or with individual student performance.  Criteria is based on, but not limited to, effectiveness as a role model; making learning fun and exciting; mentoring students; and making an impact on students' lives.
