Anyone hoping to nominate a local educator for a Crystal Apple "Excellence in Education" Award has until this Wednesday to do it.

The Umatilla-Morrow Education Service District has been accepting nominations since February. The awards are open to all regular certified or classified staff in Umatilla or Morrow counties. Administrators are not eligible for a Crystal Apple, but can qualify for the separate Doug Flatt Memorial Leadership Award.

The Crystal Apple program is now in its 10th year locally. This year's awards ceremony takes place at the Red Lion Hotel in Pendleton on May 13.
