Essay Contest Looks For Extraordinary Teachers

Applebee’s Neighborhood Grill & Bar will be hosting its Above and “BEE”yond Teacher Essay Contest on Long Island, which will recognize top teachers—as nominated by their students—by awarding them with a sponsorship check and end-of-the-year class party, courtesy of Applebee’s. The contest is being offered at Applebee’s restaurants on Long Island owned and operated by local franchisee, Doherty Enterprises.

Applebee’s will award two deserving teachers on Long Island—one from each county—with a $500 sponsorship check to use towards their classroom for the upcoming 2018-19 school year, along with an end-of-year party for their current class. To nominate a teacher, students must submit an essay in-person at their local Applebee’s explaining why their teacher deserves to be “Teacher of the Year.” To sweeten the deal, students who enter an essay will receive one free ice cream certificate to Applebee’s. Contest submissions will be accepted at participating Applebee’s restaurants through March 31, and winners will be announced on Monday, April 9.

“We are thrilled to launch our Above and BEEyond Teacher Essay Contest in our Long Island restaurants,” said Kurt Pahlitzsch, director of operations, Applebee’s Long Island. “Our restaurants are committed to giving back to the local community, including schools within the communities we serve. Teachers play a tremendous role in building a better community to live, work and play, and we wanted to honor their commitment while getting students involved in the process. We encourage students to nominate their teachers to show how much they are appreciated.”

Above and “BEE”yond Teacher Essay Contest entries will be accepted at Baldwin, Bellmore, Bethpage, Elmont, New Hyde Park, Rosedale, Valley Stream and Westbury Applebee’s locations.
