Mr. Brian Lotter - Staunton Schools
Mrs. Maggie McCalla - St. Peters Lutheran
Mrs. Peggy Nelson - South Macoupin Head Start

Our service area is growing...and so is Teacher of the Year!
We're proud to announce that we are awarding 3 Teacher of the Year winners!
Thank you to all who nominated and voted and congratulations to all of our nominated teachers!

We're so proud of our community members and customers for your willingness to recognize all of our outstanding teachers.  This year we received 71 individual submissions for our 47 nominated teachers. These teachers received almost 4,000 votes in the month of April!

Madison annually sponsors a "Teacher of the Year Contest" where residents can nominate their favorite teacher for this award.  To nominate a teacher, you must complete an online nomination form and provide a description of how this instructor has made a difference in the lives of his or her students.  Qualified candidates must be employed by a school district in Madison's service area during the calendar year for the contest period.  Qualified nominations will be posted to Madison's website for voting.  The two teachers who receive the highest number of votes during the contest period will each receive a $500 cash award and plaque.  In addition, each winning teacher's homeroom class will receive a pizza party hosted by Madison!


2017 marks the 12th year of Madison’s annual Teacher of the Year contest, which has put over $11,000 back into our local school districts! This annual contest is just a small part of Madison’s commitment to give back and show support to the communities that we serve.
