(Joplin, MO) – February 2022 – Nominations for the 2021-2022 Golden Apple Awards are being accepted now through February 11, 2022, 5:00 PM CST. This is the 37th year for this popular program, which recognizes instructional excellence in our Joplin schools, both public and private.

Awards are given in four categories: grades K–2, 3–5, 6–8, and 9–12. Teachers who are nominated are eligible to win if they are a certified classroom teacher who instructs students on a daily basis, are teaching during the 2021–2022 school year, and have not been a previous recipient of the award.
