TORONTO, May 10 /CNW/ - TVOKids is calling on students across Ontario to nominate their favourite
teacher in its fifth annual Best Teacher Ever Contest, presented by Scholar's Choice and in partnership with City Parent
magazine. With the chance for both teachers and students to win great
prizes, the contest is a perfect way to end the school year on a high
From May 2 until June 12, the contest gives kids in Junior Kindergarten
up to Grade 6 an opportunity to recognize their teachers for the
valuable work that they do. Last year's contest received over 9,900
Both teachers and the students who nominate them have a chance to win.
One teacher from each of three grade categories will win a $400 gift
card from Scholar's Choice and a netbook computer, and the students who
nominated them will win a $100 gift card from Scholar's Choice, an iPod
Shuffle and a pizza party for their class. Five other entrants in each
grade category will also win TVOKids prize packs.
To enter, kids must write to TVOKids describing what makes their teacher
so special. Is it because they make every kid feel welcome and at home
in the classroom? Do they go out of their way to give extra help after
class? Or do they just make learning fun? Children from across the
province can nominate their teacher in one of three categories: Junior
and Senior Kindergarten; Primary (grades 1-3); and Junior (grades 4-6).
Entries can be submitted online at tvokids.com, or kids can send their submission by mail, being sure to include the
name of the teacher they would like to nominate and their reason for
nominating them, their school's name, the child's own name, grade level
and phone number, and an original drawing showing why their teacher is
the best teacher ever. Mail should be addressed to:
TVOKids The Space
Attn: Best Teacher Ever Contest
Box 200, Station Q
Winners will be chosen in a random draw and announced the week of June
12. Throughout the contest, a "Teacher of the Day" will be featured on
tvokids.com. For complete rules, submission requirements, and prizing
