Golden Apple Gratitude Logo

We take great pride in recognizing local teachers through the Golden Apple awards, but we have made the difficult decision to put the process on hold for the health and safety of our teachers, students and volunteers.

Instead we will recognize local teachers this year with our NEW Golden Apple Gratitude program! We encourage students, parents, colleagues and community members to submit a note of gratitude or a 30 second video to thank a PreK - 12th grade teacher! Teachers who are recognized will be sent a thank you note from Golden Apple Foundation, along with the original message of gratitude. Any videos will be emailed to them. Teachers will also be entered into a weekly drawing, with a chance to win one of the two $100 Schnucks gift cards given out each week during the eight week program. Golden Apple Foundation limits one gratitude submission, per week, per household, and all submissions must be received online.
