“The Innovation in Teaching Competition gives us the opportunity to recognize and reward some of our most effective teachers and share their practices with students and other educators across the state,” said Deal. “I am pleased that we will be able to continue this competition with a third round, and I encourage educational leaders to submit the names of teachers who fit these criteria to the Governor’s Office of Student Achievement.”

Each winner receives a $2,000 stipend, and their school will receive $5,000. Georgia Public Broadcasting will also highlight the winners in their classroom and the materials will be used as supplements for other educators.
