Do you know a great teacher? BP is accepting nominations for its 2019 Alaska Teachers of Excellence program.

According to a Monday statement from the company, anyone can nominate an educator on the program's website. The deadline is Feb. 1.

The program, in its 24th year, recognizes K-12 teachers from public or private schools across Alaska who have made important contributions to education and their communities. BP is also taking nominations for educational allies in Alaska schools, like principals, counselors and teacher assistants.
