An APPLE Recognition Award honors special teachers, administrators, staff and school leaders for their dedication and contributions to excellence in education. An APPLE Award is a tax deductible donation to the Bozeman Schools Foundation for their district wide programs (in the name of your chosen educator). Your donation of any amount will honor deserving recipients with the following:
Forms for APPLE Awards are sent home with K-8 school kids in November / December for the end of the year Awards and in April for Teacher Appreciation week.

Please note the donation does not go directly to the educator but to BSF’s programming. To deliver your card between December 18th – 20th our deadline is December 15th.

We had great feedback from last year’s team on the ALL SPELL ROUND, so this format will come back. Here’s a quick refresher what that means:
ALL-SPELL-ROUND—Our spellers’ qualifying rounds will happen in a tournament format simultaneously. Those teams with the highest accumulated points during the ALL-SPELL will advance to the Finals. ‘Green’ words=1 point, ‘Blue’ words=2 points and ‘Black’ = 5 points. This means more spelling and no early eliminations…
FREE WORD POINTS—Pre-purchased points to get you closer to the Final round. Available for All-Spell Round only!
$250—1 Point (‘Green’ word)
$500—2 Points (‘Blue’ word)
$750—5 Points (‘Black’ word)
ADVANCE PASS—There will be a fundraising option to secure a spot for $1,000 in the FINALS. Not to worry, pure skill is required from that point forward.
Fundraise with Crowdrise. We will create a Crowdrise page for each team , which you can then share via email, Facebook or other social media to help fund your Spelling success!
