Name the People's Choice winner in our Teachers of the Year contest.

We have our finalists in this year's Teachers of the Year contest! And now you can vote for your favorite in the People's Choice contest, sponsored by Sylvan Learning of Lewis Center!

Our finalists are: in the elementary-school (K-5) category; in the middle-school (6-8) category; and in the high-school category.

From now through May 3, you can vote for one of these finalists. At the same time, a panel of judges, which includes professional educators, is conducting further research and will select the overall winner in each category.

The three merit winners and the one People's Choice winner will receive their prizes (which include a $500 cash prize!) during the month of May, and they will be featured in Columbus Parent's August Back-to-School issue.
