The NFL Network is looking for life-changing P.E. teachers leading the fight against childhood obesity to be recognized as their NFL Network Physical Education Teacher of the Year.
NFLN believes that every student should have the opportunity to participate in quality physical education. As part of the Keep Gym in School mission, they seek to increase access to in-school physical activity and to teach skills needed in order to establish and sustain healthy lifestyles. The P.E. Teacher of the Year award recognizes the role of educators in achieving that mission.
Nominate your favorite P.E. teacher for the chance to be awarded a $10,000 stipend, a $5,000 school companion P.E. grant, and a trip to the NFL Draft. The winner will also act as a spokesperson for the program in 2013, both at Keep Gym in School events and with the media.
Individuals have until December 31, 2012 to nominate their candidate for the award. Nominations are only accepted online at www.keepgyminschool.com and must be received no later than 7:00 PM CST on December 31, 2012.
NFL Network will distribute grant applications to all nominated teachers on approximately January 6, 2013. Applications must be completed and returned to NFL Network by February 8, 2013. The application will only be provided to those teachers who are nominated.
