The 2017-2018 school year marks the 27th year in which the GOLD STAR AWARDS have honored excellence in education. This program brings public recognition to educators (K-12) who have made significant contributions toward better education.
NBC Montana viewers are encouraged to nominate a favorite teacher who has made a difference in their lives. Parents, students, former students and anyone can make a nomination simply by noting the teacher's name, school and why he or she deserves the GOLD STAR AWARD.
