2020 Montana Teacher of the Year Nominations and Applications Now Open

January 31, 2019

HELENA—The Office of Public Instruction announced today that nomination and application forms are available for the 2020 Montana Teacher of the Year Program. Members of the public can fill out a simple form to nominate a teacher. Teachers can self-nominate by filling out an application. All current and actively teaching Montanans who are making a positive difference in the lives of students are encouraged to apply. If nominated, the OPI will reach out to the nominated teacher and ask them to fill out an application.

Nomination forms are due back to the OPI by May 3rd and completed applications are due by June 14th. They can be emailed to MTTOY@mt.gov. Applications, nomination forms, and additional information can be found on the OPI’s website.

“As a teacher blessed to have spent 23 years in Billings’ classrooms, I know how crucial it is to celebrate high-quality educators who promote student success,” State Superintendent Elsie Arntzen said Thursday. “I encourage all Montana communities to join me in elevating their exceptional teachers.”

Montana’s program is part of the National Teacher of the Year Program conducted by the Council of Chief State School Officers (CCSSO), of which Montana’s Superintendent of Public Instruction is a member. The 2020 Montana Teacher of the Year will go on to represent Montana in the national program.

The Montana Teacher of the Year is selected by a statewide committee of diverse education, business, government, tribal, and community stakeholders. The winner will be announced during a celebration in October. Dylan Huisken from Bonner is currently representing Montana as the 2019 Montana Teacher of the Year.
