Kumon, after-school math and reading enrichment program, invites Facebook fans to nominate their child’s favorite schoolteacher. Three exceptional schoolteachers will each win $1,500 to spend on their classrooms. While only one entry per person is allowed, so pick your children carefully.

“Teachers work tirelessly to develop innovative ways to inspire young minds,” said Kumon education specialist Dr. Mary Mokris. “Kumon wants to help families show appreciation for their children’s schoolteacher by awarding exceptional educators.”

To participate, visit the Kumon Facebook page, click on the contest tab and nominate a teacher by submitting a short essay, fewer than 200 words explaining why the teacher deserves to win $1,500. Once again, Kumon will accept entries until November 8. One entry per person is allowed.
