TCEA’s Annual Educator Awards recognize excellence in the integration of technology in schools. We present these awards, also known as Golden Apples, to some of the most innovative and engaging educators. In addition to the honor of recognition, award finalists each receive a cash prize of $500, with recipients receiving a cash prize of $1,000. All finalists and recipients also receive a plaque to commemorate the award. In lieu of a cash prize, School Board Award winners will each receive a TCEA 2020 Convention registration, plus hotel accommodations for two nights.
We present the awards at a formal awards ceremony and reception during TCEA’s Annual Convention & Exposition in February.
