All-Star Teacher Award

Nominate a Teacher

Provident Credit Union and NBC Sports Bay Area announced five finalists for the 2024 All-Star Teacher Award Program. Finalists were selected based on four categories: overall commitment; excellence in teaching; rapport with students; and level of distinction. This year, the All-Star Teacher Award Program recognizes educators teaching kindergarten through twelfth grade in Northern and Central California for their dedication to their students and community. The winning teacher will receive $30,000 for their school and it will be announced this summer prior to a San Francisco Giants game.
