Teachers are real life superheroes. They educate, innovate, encourage and support students of all ages. Every day they touch the lives of thousands of children right here in the Sioux Empire and their work and impact extends far beyond the boundaries of the classroom.
To honor and pay respect to our area educators, Dacotah Bank
and the Sioux Falls Storm Football Club
have teamed up to promote a special "Teacher-of-the-Year" contest.
We invite students ranging from K-12 grade levels to nominate their favorite teacher. Teachers who inspire creativity and enthusiasm in the classroom. Educators who demonstrate exemplary teaching methods and style. A teacher that has significant impact on students, parents and peers. Nominations for this new contest will be accepted during the timeline of January 1 - February 28, 2017.
Teachers may be nominated by students, parents, teaching peers, or a school principal who have an interest in honoring an outstanding educator. Judging will take place from all nominations received during the month of March, 2017 by Dacotah Bank
and the Sioux Falls Storm
Our three top finalists will receive one of the following prizes:
