SOME of the region's most valued educators now have the opportunity to be recognised, with Queensland’s Biggest Teacher Thank You ready to take off next month. 

Students past and present have the opportunity to nominate their favourite teacher for the recognition in the “gratitude competition” hosted by artist Rachel Burke and QSuper. 

Winning entrants will receive a $1000 Office Works prize pack and will be featured in Ms Burke's newest art installation. Individual teachers will also get the opportunity to win $100 gift cards in recognition of their contributions. 

Ms Burke said that she is a proud advocate for education, particularly in the arts and is thrilled to be involved in this event.

 “As a mother, a proud Queenslander and an advocate for education, particularly the arts, I’m thrilled to be involved,” she said. 

“From the entries received my goal is to create an artwork that will honour Queensland teachers as well as capture the creativity of our kids. “

I know personally, there are a few stand out teachers that spring to my mind and helped me in getting to where I am today as an artist, and they too, undoubtedly will form part of my inspiration.” 

The competition runs until 11:59 AEDT 21 October 2021. To enter simply head to www. qsuper.qld.gov.au/biggestthankyou and submit your nominated teacher’s name, school and your message of thanks.
