Each area school system chooses its Teacher of the Year, an award based on exemplary performance in – and often beyond – the classroom. Valley Alliance for Education, in collaboration with corporate sponsor Ntelos Wireless Foundation, further honors each Teacher of the Year with a $1,000 School Grant award, which is presented to the school superintendent or representative and Teacher of the Year at the VAE Annual Reception.
