Teacher Tuesday is back and we are looking to honor the best educators of Northern Colorado.

All school year, we will be taking nominations of area teachers who go above and beyond in their classrooms.

Each month, six of the best nominees will face off in a voting contest. The winner is surprised in their classroom with a $500 check provided by University of Northern Colorado and UNC Extended Campus. The Teacher Tuesday program is also helped made possible by Thompson River Pediatrics.

So, now's the time to step up, sound off, and let us know who your favorite teacher is. You can vote once an hour through Monday, Oct. 21, so be sure to set that reminder on your smartphone, or wearable, so that you don't miss an opportunity... because the COMPETITION 👏🏼 IS 👏🏼 TIGHT 👏🏼.

Check out this month's nominees:
