Nominate a teacher for the Crystal Apple Award

Nominations accepted through Sept. 22


The West Linn-Wilsonville Education Foundation, the Wilsonville Area Chamber of Commerce and the West Linn Chamber of Commerce are teaming up to celebrate excellent teaching in the West Linn-Wilsonville School District.

For the first time, these partners will name teachers for a Crystal Apple award. Families are invited to nominate great WL-WV teachers by going to the foundation website to make a nomination.

The Crystal Apple nomination process asks the community to describe how a teacher exemplifies teaching excellence in West Linn-Wilsonville schools, and how the teacher contributes to the West Linn-Wilsonville School District’s mission, which is: How do we create learning communities for the the greatest thinkers and most thoughtful people ... for the world?

The Crystal Apple selection committee will use the following criteria to evaluate all nominations: Does the evidence show that the teacher engages and supports all students in learning, is a role model for strong character and creates memorable, deep learning?

Visit wlwvfoundation.org and click the blue “nominate now” button. Nominations will be accepted through Sept. 22.

The Crystal Apple awards will be announced in October.
