The deadline is approaching to nominate your favorite teacher for the annual Lincoln Public Schools Thank You Teacher event.

In honor of Nebraska Teacher Recognition Day on March 7, LPS and KFOR/KFRX Radio will again collaborate to thank educators with the annual Thank You Teacher contest. Nominations should be postmarked by Friday, Feb. 8, at 5 p.m. and mailed to: Thank You Teacher, Communications, LPS District Offices, 5905 O St., Lincoln, NE 68510.

You can also submit nominations online at lps.org/apps/teacher_recognition_day.

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 or 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.
