The National Teacher of the Year Program

About the National Teacher of the Year Program
The National Teacher of the Year (NTOY) Program began in 1952 and continues as the oldest, most prestigious national honors program that focuses public attention on excellence in teaching. The NTOY is chosen from among the State Teachers of the Year by a National Selection Committee representing the major national education organizations. Each April, the NTOY is introduced to the American people by the President of the United States.

The National Teacher of the Year Program is sponsored by the ING Foundation and Target. A project of the Council of Chief State School Officers in partnership with the University of Phoenix and People to People Ambassador Programs.
