Applebee’s brings back “Teacher of the Year” essay contest

Applebee’s Neighborhood Grill & Bar recently announced the return of its Above and “BEE”yond Teacher Essay Contest.

The contest is offered at Applebee’s restaurants in several Georgia counties, including Glynn County. It recognizes the area’s top teachers, as nominated by their students, by awarding them with a sponsorship check and end-of-year class party.

Applebee’s will award one teacher in each school district with a $500 scholarship check to use toward their classroom for the 2018-2019 school year.

To nominate a teacher, students can submit an essay in-person at their local Applebee’s. The essay should explain why their teacher deserves to be “Teacher of the Year.”

Students who submit an essay will receive a certificate for a free ice cream.

Contest submissions will be accepted until March 31. Winners will be announced April 23.
