2022 Teacher of the Year Nominations Open

The nomination period is now open for the 2022 Teacher of the Year award! Please show your support for your favorite teacher before the nomination period closes on March 22, 2021. Nominations must be submitted online using the nomination form.

Not only will the 2022 Salt Lake City School District Teacher of the Year receive a $2,000 award in addition to the $500 award for being one of the four finalists, the teacher who is selected will be a candidate for the Utah Teacher of the Year award.

All Salt Lake City School District teachers who have achieved career status are eligible for consideration. Anyone may nominate teachers for this award. Nominations are accepted in any language.

The Salt Lake Education Foundation’s initial selection committee will review the nominees and narrow the selection to the top four candidates. The four candidates will be invited to complete the official 2022 Utah Teacher of the Year application. The final foundation selection committee will consist of a newly constituted panel with the exception of the chair of the selection committee. This committee’s responsibility is to select the Salt Lake City School District’s 2022 Teacher of the Year. The committee may elect to observe the candidates at the school during the school day. The candidates will be invited to a personal interview with the committee. Upon receipt and acceptance of the completed application and final interview, each candidate will receive an award of $500. The candidate who is selected as the district’s Teacher of the Year will receive a $2,000 award at a special recognition event in August.

Please contact Jennie Vuich at or 801.578.8561 if you have questions regarding this recognition program or process.
