The Golden Apple Teacher Award is back!


Post Consumer Brands is excited to return as the 2018/2019 Golden Apple segment sponsor. This segment highlights the efforts of our NWA teachers/ coaches/ classroom instructors that go above and beyond the normal duties of teaching within a classroom and how they “Make Better Happen” for their students. If you know someone like this, we would love to hear about them.

Once a month, one teacher from NWA school districts (traditional and non-traditional settings) will be chosen for an amazing prize package. The winner will have a surprise classroom visit from our very own Chris Frye, a Post Consumer Brand rep, and a camera crew. On the last Wednesday of the month the story will air. (Visits will be organized and confirmed through winning schools principal’s office).

Below you will find the link to our Golden Apple online submission page. Please share this with all of your teachers in your district. This contest will run through the entire school year and our first teacher will be chosen in September. Thank you for your assistance with this wonderful opportunity.

Help us earn a recycled bench for our EAST Garden by sending in HDPE #2 bottles

We are 400 bottles away from our goal of collecting 2,000 HDPE #2 bottles! Please send in any empty bottles (no milk/water jugs please) that have the #2 symbol on them so that we can earn a recycled bench from Boston Mountain Waste District. Our hope is to place this bench next to our new EAST garden. We appreciate your help!
