By East Tucson Macaroni Kid March 13, 2020

YES! We're still doing this. Even if we have to schedule a celebration for summer or next fall, it's time to let the teachers and staff at your favorite Tucson elementary school know how MUCH you appreciate them! East Tucson Macaroni Kid has once again partnered with Mama's Famous Pizza to provide a pizza party to the staff of one very deserving school in our 4th Annual East Tucson Macaroni Kid Gold Daisy School Appreciation Contest! Plus, Lucky Cat Social Art will give the winning school a $100 donation!

We wish we could honor every school in Tucson, but there can only be one awardee this year. That's where YOU come in!


The top 10 nominated elementary schools will be eligible to win the grand prize our Gold Daisy School Appreciation Contest. Nominations are only open NOW through March 22, so nominate your school DAILY, and share this contest on Facebook, Twitter, e-mail, and word of mouth to get your school on the voting ballot! The more buzz you can generate about your favorite school, the better chance they have to make it to the top 10!

You must be an East Tucson Macaroni Kid subscriber to nominate; click HERE to subscribe prior to voting or let us know on the nomination form that you'd like us to subscribe you. Schools must serve elementary students and be in the East/Central Tucson area or Vail. Charter, private and public schools are all eligible. If you are not sure if your school is eligible, go ahead and nominate it anyway and we will verify eligibility.
