NFL Network is looking for those life-changing PE teachers leading the fight against childhood obesity. Do you know one? We will award the NFL Network PE Teacher of the Year a $10,000 stipend, a $10,000 school companion PE grant and a trip to the NFL Draft. The NFL Network PE Teacher of the Year will also act as a spokesperson for the program in 2011, both at Keep Gym in School events and with the media.
We believe that every student should have the opportunity to participate in quality physical education. As part of the Keep Gym in School mission, we seek to increase access to in-school physical activity and to teach skills needed to establish and sustain healthy lifestyles. The PE Teacher of the Year award recognizes the role of educators in achieving that mission.
Individuals may nominate one PE teacher between now and January 31, 2011 for PE Teacher of the Year; nominations are only accepted online at keepgyminschool.com and must be received no later than 8:00 PM EST on January 31, 2011.
NFL Network will distribute grant applications to all nominated teachers on approximately February 4, 2011. Applications must be completed and returned to NFL Network by February 25, 2011. The application will only be provided to those teachers who are nominated.
