SYRACUSE -- Clear Channel AC Y94FM (WYYY) and the Syracuse City School District are teaming up to salute teachers. Nominations are now being accepted for "31 Teachers, 31 Days." Each day in May, winners will be recognized online and on-air.
The Syracuse City School District says, "teachers may not have the cape or flashy lights, but they rise to superhero challenges -- and deserve to be recognized."
Nominations can be submitted through a special page on Y94FM's website through the end of February. Nominators must explain why their nominee should be recognized, specifically answering four questions about each teacher. A committee from the Syracuse Teachers Association and Say Yes to Education will review the nominations next month.
Each day during May, another teacher will be profiled on-air and online. All 31 teachers will also be invited to a special "teachers' night out event," where SCSD says "they will be individually honored for their contributions.
