Teacher of the Month

The Detroit Red Wings Teacher of the Month program, presented by Burns and Wilcox, was created to show thanks and gratitude to Michigan teachers and educators who change the lives of millions of children every day, inside and outside the classroom. Each month from October 2023 to March 2024, one deserving teacher will be recognized with the Red Wings Teacher of the Month award. Fans may nominate a teacher who they feel had a significant impact on the lives of children in their community by completing the online form below.

Awards & Prizes

Six outstanding nominated teachers will receive a personalized award from the Red Wings and Burns and Wilcox, two tickets to a pre-determined Red Wings home game, and a $1,500 Visa gift card to be used towards improving their classroom. One Teacher of the Year grand prize winner will receive a $5,000 grant and a meet and greet with a Detroit Red Wings player!

Who Can Be Nominated

A nominee for the Red Wings Teacher of the Month program must be an individual educator in Michigan who has improved student achievement, used innovative strategies in the classroom and/or is making a difference in the lives of their students. Michigan educators at all grade levels (K-12) and disciplines are eligible for consideration. The Red Wings will review all nominations and select one individual to receive the Teacher of the Month award each month through March 4, 2024.

Please Note: The nomination process is rolling month-to-month. If a nominee is not selected, their nomination will transfer to the next month for consideration. There is no need to submit the same nomination each month for the same nominee unless the nomination contains new information to support the nominee.
