Barnes & Noble, Inc. announced the start of the 2017 "Barnes & Noble My Favorite Teacher Contest," which for the past seven years has provided middle and high school students the opportunity to tell their communities how much they appreciate their teachers. Students can nominate their teacher by writing essays, poems or thank-you letters that share how their teacher has influenced their life and why they appreciate and admire them. Participating schools collect the essays and submit them to their local Barnes & Noble store, including Barnes & Noble Layton, for consideration. Entries are judged on the compelling nature of the teacher’s inspiring qualities, the sincerity of the student’s appreciation and the quality of expression and writing.
The local winning teacher will be recognized in spring 2017 at an event held at Barnes & Noble Layton, where they will receive a special award acknowledging their achievement as well as additional recognition and praise from their community. The student who wrote the winning essay or poem will receive a certificate of recognition and will also be honored at the ceremony. The Barnes & Noble My Favorite Teacher Contest submission period begins January 4, 2017, and ends March 1, 2017.
