The Arizona Diamondbacks and Papa John's are proud to support Arizona teachers through the D-backs Most Valuable Teachers (MVT) Award. Arizona's teachers are the foundation of our children's education, and all students deserve great teachers who believe in their potential and will inspire them to be their very best. Celebrating outstanding educators provides a perfect opportunity to recognize the best-of-the-best of our state's teachers and acknowledge their commitment.
You can nominate an educator that has made a difference in your life by submitting an essay (maximum 500 words). The Arizona Diamondbacks Foundation and Papa John's will recognize ten (10) winning educators every month through August before D-backs games this season and each will receive a $1,000 grant for classroom supplies and a pizza party for their students!
In September, the D-backs will recognize and award the Teacher of the Year who will receive on-field recognition and a $5,000 grant! Please see Official Rules for details.
