The nomination period for this program has ended. Thanks for your interest.
The Arizona Diamondbacks Foundation developed the D-backs MVT Award to support the everyday heroes in our schools that are shaping the future for our community and our kids. Arizona's teachers are the foundation of our children's education, and they all students deserve great teachers who believe in their potential and will inspire them to be their very best. Celebrating outstanding educators provides a perfect opportunity to recognize the best-of-the-best of our state's teachers and acknowledge their commitment.
You can nominate an educator that has made a difference in your life by submitting an essay (350-500 words). The Arizona Diamondbacks Foundation will recognize ten (10) winning educators every month through August before D-backs games this season and each will receive a $1,000 grant for their classroom.
In September, the D-backs will recognize and award the Teacher of the Year who will receive on-field recognition and a $5,000 grant! Please see Official Rules for details.
The Most Valuable Teacher program is now closed for 2017. Please check back in Spring of 2018.
