Crystal Apple Award winners
The nominations come from almost 200 students who are members of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints. The students each choose a favorite educator, then write and submit a recommendation letter, which often conveys their gratitude to a particular teacher for taking the time to reach out to them individually.
