Nominate a Teacher

De Castroverde Law Group is once again looking to recognize and highlight amazing teachers throughout Clark County.

If you know a teacher that’s making an outsized impact on the community, we want to hear about it. Whether you’re a current student, former student, or even parent, we’re asking you to nominate the Clark County teacher that’s had a positive impact in your life. If the teacher you nominate is selected as one of the winners due to your submission and information provided, we’ll even give you a $25 Amazon gift card as a “thank you” for taking the time to make a nomination.*

Please Note: Even if you’ve already nominated a teacher during our previous rounds, you’re welcome to nominate them again. Choosing just three winners from such a large pool of qualified candidates twice a year is difficult, so please continue to highlight the teachers you feel are doing an exceptional job. The only teachers that are not eligible are those who have previously received a prize.

The selected teachers will receive a combination of donations for classroom supplies or materials, along with a prize for personal use in recognition of their outstanding achievements. DLG will select three nominees and award the following prizes:

Giving Back to Those Who Make a Difference

Teachers have played a huge role in the lives of DLG’s team. In addition to the educators who influenced the attorneys and staff during their time in school, the firm also has a personal connection to the profession. Alex’s wife was a first-grade teacher and speech pathologist for the district, and Orlando’s wife was also an elementary school teacher. In addition, their sister is currently a first-grade teacher at a public school in Las Vegas.

DLG is excited to honor a few of the outstanding teachers who continue to shape the future of Clark County.

*Submissions accepted through May 1, 2020. Winners cannot be a previous prize winner; prizes are awarded as listed for grand prize, runner up and honorable mention. All those who submit a nomination will be eligible for a $25 Amazon gift card if the teacher is selected based on their submission.

Special thanks to the DISCOVERY Children’s Museum for their donations.
