Golden Apple Moments Nominations

What is KCTS 9 Golden Apple Moments? 

For over two decades, Golden Apple Moments has celebrated innovative educators, programs and schools making a positive difference in Washington State education, from early childhood through high school. We share their successes with the community in a special program, which airs on public television stations statewide and online. Each year’s recipients are also honored with a cash award.

Who can be nominated? 

Teachers, volunteers, administrators, staff and educational programs are all eligible. The guidelines are simple:

  • Individual or program nominees must work or volunteer their time in or in conjunction with a public or private school serving pre-K–12 students in Washington State.
  • Award recipients must be willing to appear in the segment broadcast online and on television and to allow cameras into their classrooms and/or program.
  • Individuals and programs nominated in past years are eligible for consideration. Self-nominations are accepted.
  • Previous Golden Apple winners are not eligible for selection.
