Award winners receive a check, a golden apple, and special recognition from Corvallis school district leadership. Mario Pastega participated in the presentation of the Golden Apple Awards for fifteen years until his death in 2012. Mario will always be remembered for his generosity, his encouraging message to staff affirming their importance as educators, and the loaf of homemade bread that he presented to winners each year. Special thanks to The Ball Studio Photography for providing professional portraits that are displayed in the Corvallis School District Board Room.

Nominate a colleage for a Golden Apple Award! Any 509J employee may recommend a fellow educator for this prestigious honor. Download a Golden Apple Nomination Form and submit it to the Corvallis Public Schools Foundation by January 15.
