This contest is open to all students (K-12) & active teachers within Harford & Cecil County. Each entrant must submit a brief essay explaining who his/her favorite teacher is/was and why that particular educator is so outstanding. All the entries will be "judged" by (5) employees of Bartenfelder Sanitation and (1) “Favorite Teacher” will be chosen.

The winning teacher will win a gift basket full of fun gifts and many gift cards to local places, as well be featured on our website & social media platforms.

Who may be nominated?

Classroom teachers of any subject currently teaching in grades K-12, full-time or part-time, at any type of school (public, public charter, or private, for example) in Harford & Cecil County 

Who may nominate a teacher?
Current or former students, and parents on behalf of students (particularly the younger ones who may need a hand completing the nomination form!)  

How do you decide which teacher will be chosen to win?

Our team will look for inspiring stories about deserving teachers. Each teacher we  want to honor will have made an important positive impact--either personal, academic, or inspirational--on a student’s life. We want to honor a variety of teachers who embody the many different ways that teachers are changing lives every day across the county.

Will my teacher know about the nomination?

Yes! He or she will receive a “You’ve Been Honored” email. This is our way of honoring every teacher who has been nominated. The email will include your answer to the “How has your teacher changed your life?” question we ask below. We also sometimes feature nominations on our social media feeds to showcase as many stories as possible.

How will I know if my teacher has been selected as an honoree?

If your nomination is selected to win we will contact you and the winning teacher.
