About the Program 

The Golden Apple Awards Program is a Warren County Public Schools staff recognition program. Each month, four WCPS employees are recognized for their exemplary service to the district and its students. The monthly awards are given to those who go above and beyond their normal job requirements, demonstrate Service Excellence, and embody the values of the district by ensuring safety, achievement, and opportunity for every student. These awards are for those employees who practice an on-going and high level of commitment to their job, their district, their students, and their fellow employees. 

Each month, both teachers and support personnel will be recognized according to an established schedule. Any employee of Warren County Public Schools can make nominations using the Golden Apple nomination form.
