About the Golden Apple Award

The Golden Apple Award is a means of selecting and honoring some of the most outstanding teachers in our community.  One winner will be selected from each school. Award recipients receive a Golden Apple, as well as gift certificates from local businesses. As a “Golden Apple” teacher, each recipient is eligible to receive a $1,000 Golden Apple Grant. Grants are awarded to eight candidates: three elementary, two middle, and two high school candidates, and one from the schools that are members of the VAIS. The grant award is used for classroom materials or to support the recipient’s continued professional development.


Candidates are teachers at any level (pre-school through grade 12) and in any discipline. Candidates for this award have demonstrated excellence in teaching and involvement in the community outside the school.

Golden Apple Award recipients who received this award within the past three years are not eligible for nomination.

Award Ceremony

Golden Apple Award recipients are invited to a reception in their honor on Thursday, May 11, 2017, in Lane Auditorium at the County Office Building on McIntire Road. Golden Apple grant recipients will be selected and announced at the reception.
