Could You or Someone You Know Be TeachKind’s 2024 Teacher of the Year? Enter Now!

National Teacher Appreciation Month is coming up in May, and TeachKind is looking for our next Teacher of the Year to celebrate!

2024 Teacher of the Year Contest

Do you or does someone you know teach young people to be kind to animals? If so, we want to hear from you! Nominate yourself, a friend, a colleague, a teacher at your child’s school, or any other educator who speaks up for animals through their work. Need some inspiration? Check out last year’s inspiring winners and runners-up.

Update: The deadline to enter has been extended to Tuesday, April 23, but don’t delay!

What does TeachKind look for when selecting the winner of its Teacher of the Year Contest?

When it comes to teaching children to be kind to animals, there’s more than one way to peel a potato! Some teachers sponsor their school’s animal rights club or organize fundraisers to benefit their local animal shelter. Others have their students research animal rights issues, like experimenting on animals or the negative effects of animal agriculture on the environment, and form persuasive arguments in favor of compassionate solutions to these problems. Maybe you use lifelike models such as SynFrog or digital dissection tools instead of dead animals to help your students study the inner workings of other species. Or perhaps you show animal rights documentaries as part of your curriculum to develop students’ critical thinking skills. Don’t be shy! However you teach kindness, you’re making the world a better place for all sentient beings—and we want to hear about it. You could be the inspiration or the nudge another educator needs to make a change and choose compassion themselves.

How do I nominate myself or someone else for TeachKind’s Teacher of the Year Contest?

TeachKind’s Teacher of the Year Contest closes on Tuesday, April 23, so be sure to nominate yourself or another educator before then by filling out the form below. Let us know how your nominee has demonstrated compassion for animals or otherwise taken action to help them this school year, and please include a photo of the nominee. Once you finish filling out the form, keep an eye out for an e-mail from us—we may have a few follow-up questions for you.

We’ll choose one winner and up to three runners-up by assessing the responses to the question at the end of the form and selecting the entries with the most inspiring responses.
