Microsoft Store Wants Students to Nominate Their Favorite Teachers for an Award
The winning educators will be featured in Microsoft Store's virtual Legacy Museum.
To celebrate Teacher Appreciation Week, which runs from May 3 to May 7, Microsoft Store is encouraging students to nominate educators who have “gone above and beyond the call of duty during the 2020-2021 school year” for a chance to have them featured in an online exhibit.
Nominations are being accepted from now until April 12. Each nomination must be accompanied by a short essay of 500 words or less or a video message lasting 2-4 minutes, which explains why the educator deserves to be recognized. For the purposes of this event, “educators” is being defined as any member of a school’s faculty, and not just teachers. That means custodians, bus drivers, coaches, counselors, and more are also eligible for nominations. Educators can also nominate their fellow employees for this recognition.
During Teacher Appreciation Week, Microsoft Store will highlight 75 of the top educators from these nominations in a new exhibit in its virtual Legacy Museum. The Legacy Museum also features exhibits highlighting prominent individuals from the past and present related to Black History Month and Women’s History Month.
The 75 educators highlighted in this exhibit will receive a “customized Microsoft educational experience for a class of up to 100 students.” They’ll also receive a goodie bag containing a Microsoft tablet, among other prizes.
Students and parents can learn more about nominating their favorite educators right here.
