RIDE coordinates the selection and recognition of several award programs: the Milken Family Foundation Educator Awards; Rhode Island Teacher of the Year; the Presidential Awards in Mathematics and Science; and Principal of the Year; as well as the Golden Apple Awards.
Golden Apple Awards
NBC 10, the Rhode Island Department of Education, RIDOT Cares, and Hasbro are teaming up to recognize outstanding teachers in our communities. The Golden Apple Award honors those who believe in the true spirit of teaching by making classrooms a creative and safe place to learn.
Winning educators will receive a $250 contribution from Hasbro provided by the Kids in Need Foundation to help them fund their classroom needs, as well as a gift basket from RIDOT Cares, the employee charitable organization at the RI Department of Transportation.
If you know an outstanding teacher who deserves recognition for their efforts in the classroom, you can nominate them using the form at turnto10.com.
