The Tri-City Crystal Apple Award Program was established in 1999 to honor the Mid-Columbia education profession as a whole by identifying a few of the many wonderful classroom teachers, counselors, librarians, and administrators in our seven public school districts who have made a positive impact on the lives of their students. The award program is sponsored by community service groups, businesses, and other organizations that want to recognize and show their appreciation and support for the thousands of outstanding teachers in the Tri-City area. The Special Achievement Award is given each year to a person – not necessarily an educator – who makes a significant contribution to education in the Mid-Columbia. As of March 2012, 175 Tri-City teachers have been recognized as Crystal Apple Award winners. Congratulations to all of them and their supporters. Learn more!
