District 100 is excited to announce that two of this year's finalists for the Golden Apple Awards are from the Belvidere School District!
Nearly 600 teachers in our area were originally nominated.
These PreK - 5th grade teachers were chosen by a selection committee of community volunteers who had the difficult task of selecting only 20 teachers from a large group of worthy nominees.

These teachers will be observed in their classrooms by trained community volunteers on three separate occasions between Jan. 16 and Feb. 16, 2018. The next step in the selection process after observations is an interview. The process culminates with the selection of five teachers who will receive the prestigious Golden Apple Award in surprise classroom presentations featured by WREX-13 and the Rockford Register Star.
