ASPEN – The Aspen Community Foundation is accepting nominations for the Patricia C. Moore Teacher Award.

Six public-school teachers will receive the award, which includes a $5,000 cash prize, in recognition of their dedication to quality education, student achievement and community leadership.

“With this award, donors honor and pay tribute to those teachers who go the extra mile each and every day to serve their students and the community,” said Tamara Tormohlen, executive director of the Aspen Community Foundation.

The Patricia C. Moore Teacher Award was established in 2010 and will be given out annually through 2014. Nominees must be K-12 teachers employed in the Aspen School District, which includes Aspen Elementary, Aspen Middle, Aspen High and Aspen Community schools.

Teachers can be nominated by students, administrators, counselors, fellow teachers, school employees, or friends and colleagues not associated with a school. The deadline for nominations is April 16, and the online nomination process is available at

Award recipients will be chosen by an appointed advisory committee and announced before the end of the school year.
