You never forget the teacher who makes a difference…

In a year like no other, every teacher deserves an award! Help us celebrate educators who made an extra-special impact. Do you know a math teacher who has a special way of making learning numbers fun for students? Or a science teacher who opened a new world for your child? Nominate an extraordinary teacher for the 2021 Teacher Impact Awards!

We all know teachers who have gone the extra mile to make a difference in the lives of their students. This program is designed to recognize and celebrate seven K-12 teachers in public and private schools in the Rotary District’s seven county area which include:

  • Adams
  • Cumberland
  • Dauphin
  • Lancaster
  • Lebanon
  • Perry
  • York

A committee of current and former educators, Rotary members and WITF staff will review nominations and select winners. WITF will produce a special compilation television program featuring the outstanding teachers that will air on WITF TV. The top teachers also will be honored at a special awards ceremony on May 26, 2021.

The more nominations, the better! Download a PDF flyer to share with your school here.

This school year was unlike any other.  Teacher appreciation has taken on an entirely new meaning. That’s why WITF and Rotary 7390 are proud to celebrate teachers giving their all! 

Congratulations to the Teacher Impact Awards Class of 2020! From a field of almost 250 nominations, one teacher (or team of teachers) was selected from each county within the Rotary’s district coverage. These amazing teachers inspire a love of learning and discovery. They shine in their schools and in their communities.

WITF and Rotary District 7390 will celebrate both the 2020 and 2021 “Teacher Impact Awards” winners at a banquet in May 2021.

WITF is proud to partner with Rotary District 7390 and Capital BlueCross to present the Teacher Impact Awards.
