One of the largest teach awards in the nation is looking for entries, and it's only open to teachers from our region.
The McGlothlin Award for Teaching Excellence is looking for applicants. The prize is $25,000. $10,000 of it must be used to travel to another country and bring that experience back to the kids they teach.
The award comes from a local company, the McGlothlin Foundation, who has awarded $750,000 to local teachers over the last 14 years.
Last year Steve Ahn from Abingdon won in the high school category.
