The Utah PTA Golden Apple Awards
Each year, the Golden Apple Awards are presented by the Utah PTA and KUED in recognition of six outstanding educators and two exceptional volunteers. Selected from nominees submitted by schools in Utah, these educators provide children with the educational and social tools needed to succeed. In 2011 KUED and the Utah PTA celebrate twenty-one years of honoring dedicated teachers and volunteers in the state of Utah.
"KUED has a strong commitment to education in Utah," says Michael A. Dunn, general manager. "The rich twenty-one year history of this collaboration is an indication of our commitment to educational programming and community. This recognition is a reminder of how everyone benefits when a talented teacher or school volunteer enriches the life of a child."
