The Grand Junction Rockies are proud to partner with Lowe's to honor local teachers through the Lowe's Teachers of the Year program. During the month of May, local parents and students can submit why their teacher should be one of the Lowe's Teachers of the Year. All submissions must be sent via email to Jarah Wright at firstname.lastname@example.org. When submitting, please include the teacher's name, their school, what grade they teach, and why they are deserving of this award. The submission deadline is June 2nd. From these submissions, three teachers will be selected. There will one elementary school teacher, one middle school teacher, and one high school teacher. These teachers will be honored at the Grand Junction Rockies game on August 6th with a first pitch and an award by the Grand Junction Rockies and Lowe's. The winning teachers will also be given 50 tickets to hand out to members of their school.
