Opportunity at a Glance: The Big Apple Awards is New York City’s opportunity to recognize and honor teachers who go above and beyond for their students and school community. Say “thank you” to a dedicated colleague for all their hard work by nominating them! Nominating an educator for the Big Apple Awards is a great way to show your appreciation and highlight the great work happening in your school. Recipients are given the opportunity to participate in the Big Apple Fellowship and represent teachers citywide as members of the Chancellor’s Teacher Advisory Group. All full-time NYC public school teachers may be nominated. For the first time this year, there will be a special Big Apple Award College and Career Counselor award honoring counselors who have made significant strides in advancing their students’ postsecondary readiness and success.
