Neighborhood Grill & Bar to Award 10 Outstanding Teachers
Throughout Counties in Alabama and Georgia

Applebee’s Neighborhood Grill & Bar® locations throughout Alabama and Georgia today announced the launch of an exciting new program benefitting local teachers. For the first time ever, Alabama and Georgia Applebee’s are proud to hold the “Bee” Amazing Teacher Essay Contest, where elementary, middle and high school students will now have the chance to recognize their amazing educators with the Applebee’s Teacher of the Year honor and a few fun prizes!

To nominate a teacher, students must submit an essay in-person at their local participating Applebee’s explaining why their teacher deserves to be one of Applebee’s Teachers of the Year. Applebee’s will accept essays from April 8 – May 10.*
