Big Apple Awards Nominations now OPEN

Dear Barnes School Community,

The Big Apple Awards (BAA) nomination process for the upcoming cohort of Fellows for the 2023–24 school year is now open through February 28. Members of the school community (families, students, and community-based organizations) are invited to nominate a teacher for the Big Apple Award. Please review attached letter and translated versions available.

Nominations can be made by submitting the teacher’s name and school to the DOE All Stars website. Note that you do not need a DOE login to nominate a teacher through this portal, as individuals without a DOE login may sign in as a guest). 

Teachers who are recommended will be considered for the Big Apple Award and, if selected, will have the opportunity to serve as a Big Apple Fellow, take part in the Chancellor’s Teacher Advisory Council, and receive a grant to use towards their classroom. 
Thank you for your time and any consideration in this matter.
