Has a teacher made a difference in your life, or your child’s life?

Nominate that teacher below and tell us what makes them such an incredible influence.

Nominations can be made by students and parents in the Frederick County school district and must be for actively employed teachers in Frederick County.


Every other Tuesday, starting January 16th, a teacher will be selected as the Heart of Learning winner.  Then, a Key 103 personality will visit that teacher’s school and present the teacher with a Heart of Learning winner certificate, along with a certificate for a free Light Side Floats Hydrotherapy Session, a Daisy’s Salon & Body Boutique gift card, and a free oil change from Criswell of Thurmont!

9 teachers will be awarded the Heart of Learning Award. All 9 teachers will then be placed in a voting competition between 5/11 – 5/25. The teacher with the most votes will win a 7 night trip for two to Riu Palace Riviera Maya in Riviera Maya, Mexico , courtesy of Apple Vacations as the Heart of Learning teacher of the year!!
