We Appreciate Teachers

We’re on a quest to find 25 extraordinary teachers across Illinois!

🍎 ⭐️ ❤️🏆

In the heart of every community, teachers ignite the spark of learning, nurturing dreams, and shaping futures. At Back 2 School America, we recognize the extraordinary dedication and impactful work of teachers across the state.

Whether you’re a teacher, a student, or simply a supporter of education, join us in celebrating the remarkable teachers who make a difference every day!


The We Appreciate Teachers Contest is closed for 2024.

Information on the 2025 contest will be posted in January 2025.

The 25 winning teachers for 2024 will be celebrated at a reception on May 10, 2024 where they will receive Back 2 School kits for their classroom and a basket filled with gifts just for them.
