Please take time today to nominate your favorite teacher for the annual Lincoln Public Schools Thank You Teacher event.

In honor of Nebraska Teacher Recognition Day – Tuesday, March 5, 2024 – Lincoln Public Schools and KFOR/KFRX Radio are again collaborating to thank our educators with the annual Thank You Teacher contest.

Anyone who lives in Lincoln/Lancaster County can nominate a teacher in any of five categories: preschool–grade 2, grades 3–5, middle school, high school and retired. In addition to a written description, explaining why a teacher made a difference in your life, entries should include the teacher’s name, grade level and school (or contact information), as well as the nominator’s name, school and grade level (if applicable), address and phone number.

Five teachers will be chosen and honored on March 5. The winners will all receive gift bags and prizes awarded by KFOR/KFRX and their sponsors.

You can view a list of our past winners here.

The event is part of Nebraska Teacher Recognition activities. Sponsors include LPS, KFOR/KFRX, the Lincoln Education Association and the Foundation for Lincoln Public Schools.
