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. All students deserve great teachers - adults who believe in their potential and will inspire them to be their very best. Celebrating outstanding teachers and educators provides a perfect opportunity to recognize the best-of-the-best of our local teachers and acknowledge their commitment.
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.
Entries will be accepted until July 31, 2017.
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!
