ThisWeek Community News is seeking nominations for our 2018 Teachers of the Year awards.

Again this year, we will recognize three deserving educators — one each at the elementary, middle and high school levels — in partnership with Columbus Parent.

Anyone may submit a nomination, including parents, students, colleagues and principals. The deadline is Feb. 14.

Submit your nomination.

After the nomination window closes, our editorial staffs will review the submissions and narrow the list to 15 finalists (three per category). An online public voting period will follow, from March 5 to April 2.

Winners will be recognized with award ceremonies at their buildings before the school year ends. They also will be featured in ThisWeek Community News publications and in the June issue of Columbus Parent.
