Utica National launches virtual Teacher Hero contest


NEW HARTFORD — For the second consecutive year, Utica National Insurance Group is will launch a virtual Teacher Hero contest to recognize top teachers.

Over the past two years, teachers across the country have had to quickly adapt to a new world of virtual education by learning new technologies, adjusting to new ways of teaching, and providing greater emotional support to students due to COVID-19.

Utica National representatives said they recognize the challenges that teachers face and want to honor them for their dedication during this difficult time.

“We know how passionate teachers are and how they have been continually going above and beyond to continue to teach students in many different ways over the past two years,” said Brian Saville, Utica National Educational Institutions senior vice-president.

“We’re honored to be able to recognize the outstanding dedication of teachers in our communities with this award,” the Utica National senior vice president added.

From now through May 20, teachers across the U.S. can be nominated for the Utica National 2022 Teacher Hero Award at https://www.uticanational.com/teacherheroes.

Utica National will choose 25 finalists who will be announced on June 1, and then hold an online vote for the finalists, the announcement said.

The finalist with the greatest number of votes will become the 2022 Utica National Teacher Hero and win a $500 prize.

There will also be awards of $300 to the second place finisher and $200 to third place, according to the announcement.
