Dozens of well-deserving teachers were once again nominated for the 2016 Teacher of the Year Award. At a preliminary event, sponsors Cars Plus and DoCoMo Pacific announced that the winner would have the privilege of using the T.O.Y. vehicle plus one year's worth of gas. This year's top educator will also receive an iPad Pro, several iPads for use in the classroom, and free wireless service. He or she will also receive a round-trip airfare to the U.S. mainland to attend the national ceremony.
