The video above celebrates the 2019 Greatest High School Teacher Contest winners. The contest is returning this year for the first time since 2019.

Humber College students may have left high school behind for their post-secondary journey, but they can still recognize a teacher who went above and beyond to help them succeed through the College’s Greatest High School Teacher contest.

The contest is returning for the first time since 2019.   

The contest gives entrants an opportunity to win a $500 gift certificate from the Bookstore, while honouring an unforgettable high school teacher who went the extra mile to inspire them and their peers.

To enter, students must write a 500-word essay describing their greatest high school teacher along with completing the registration form. Those interested in entering can find the registration form here.

The winners and their greatest high school teachers will be invited to a special awards reception on May 30 at the Barrett Centre for Technology Innovation at North Campus.

The teacher will receive a plaque commemorating the honour. The winning teacher will also get to choose a current high school student to receive a full tuition scholarship to Humber in their name.

The person who nominated the winning teacher will also have their name added to the plaque and will receive a recognition certificate.

The deadline to apply is March 5.
