Tribute to Teachers: Nominations received, winners revealed starting May 17


The nominees have been submitted and now our Tribute to Teachers campaign moves to phase two. A panel of judges is carefully and thoroughly reviewing each of the nominations received. The panel will choose five South Florida teachers as the 2021 honorees.

The selected teachers will be announced and have their inspiring stories told on Local 10 News beginning May 17. We will reveal one teacher honoree each day, from Monday to Friday that week, in the 5 p.m. newscast.

A large number of nominations were received from all across South Florida.

The honored teachers will also be awarded a special gift, courtesy of our contest sponsor Publix Super Markets.
