Contest lets students honor favorite teacher

Barnes & Noble Booksellers is holding a "My Favorite Teacher Contest" to give students an opportunity to tell how much they appreciate their teachers.

Teachers from kindergarten through 12 grade are eligible for nomination.

Students can nominate a teacher by writing a poem, an essay or a thank you letter that shares how that teacher influenced their life and why they admire the teacher. Local winning teachers will be honored at an event at the Kennewick store at Columbia Center mall. Entries can be submitted to Michelle Price at the store by March 18.
