Barnes & Nobles is currently having their My Favorite Teacher writing contest, in which middle school and high school students write a 500 word essay about their favorite teacher, for a prize of $500 and a NOOK device. Five regional teachers will win $500, and the Teacher of the Year winner will receive $5,000 dollars and so will their school.

A-TECH does not take specific time to focus on the writing contest, but that doesn’t have to stop you from writing yourself.

“I plan to write about a teacher, I just don’t know which one yet. There are a lot of good teachers here,” said Ali Rodriguez. Though A-TECH student life is a full schedule of work, a little time to show appreciation to teachers can mean more than you think.

Anyone who has a favorite teacher and wants to show some appreciation, this contest is an easy way to get large prizes and build a stronger relationship with staff and students.
