Teacher of the Year Awards

For over 20 years, Arizona Athletics has showcased excellence in education by recognizing outstanding high school teachers in Southern Arizona. The University of Arizona Online has joined this initiative and is the proud sponsor.
High School Teacher of the Year 2018

Every year a committee selects nine high school teachers as finalists and they are acknowledged with a presentation at a home men’s basketball game with the winner being announced at the end of the season at an awards banquet. The University of Arizona Online is excited to recognize these outstanding teachers and has increased the award money the teachers receive. Finalists now receive $500 each and the winner receives $2,500!

The partnership between business, higher education and public education is an important way to recognize teachers for their outstanding efforts on behalf of students.
