    About the Program
    This year marks the 
    22nd Anniversary of the Chamber's Crystal Apple Awards. Teachers are the heart of our schools.  They nurture our children?s inquisitive minds and prepare them for the challenges of the future.  Teachers need and deserve our support.

    The Community Awareness and Recognition in Education (CARE) Committee, which is made up of representatives of the Chamber in the business community, sponsors a program which honors six outstanding teachers in Finney County each year. 
     


    Teacher Eligibility

    Early Childhood through twelfth grade certified teachers currently under contract and in good standing with the school and in the classroom in Bible Christian Academy, Garden City Public Schools, Holcomb Public Schools, St. Dominic or St. Mary Catholic Schools are eligible to participate in the Crystal Apple Teacher Recognition Program.  They can be either full-time or part-time teachers, special education teachers, counselors or librarians. Substitutes and certified support staff personnel, such as psychologists, social workers and others, are ineligible to participate. Previous Crystal Apple recipients are also ineligible to participate.  

    The six finalists receive recognition at the CARE Crystal Apple Recognition Banquet on Thursday, November 16, 2017.  The three award recipients each receive a $1,000 cash award and an Apple iPad. The three remaining finalists receive awards of $250 each.
