Nominations are currently open until May 6. To nominate a teacher, Turlockers may visit http://mlb.mlb.com/allstar-teachers/ .
MLB, Target and PEOPLE will review nominations and select three teachers per MLB team, with the 90 finalists to be announced on June 5.
From June 5 through June 29, fans can visit AllStarTeachers.com to read each nominee’s story, and to vote for their favorite teachers. The 30 winners, one representing each MLB team, will be announced during All-Star Week.
All winners will be included in All-Star Week activities, and will be recognized during the pre-game ceremony of the 2014 MLB All-Star Game in Minnesota. One winner will be featured in PEOPLE during the week of the MLB All-Star Game.
