Callaway Chamber of Commerce is currently hosting their fourth annual Tag-A-Teacher campaign.

The campaign is meant to show extra appreciation to Callaway County teachers along with the Teacher Appreciation Breakfast which will be held August 5 this year.

Dollar General Distribution Center is sponsoring the campaign, and giving teachers everything they need to get excited for the upcoming school year. Not only will their tote be full of school supplies, but also some gift cards from throughout the community.

"They do receive school supplies at the breakfast," Marketing and Special Events Coordinator Justis Smith said. "But we add some things that may be of higher ticket value. Things that may be really cool, like the little apple that has the Post-it notes, just something to make them stand out. We also get things from our businesses like gift cards for salons and restaurants."

To nominate a teacher, go to the Callaway Chamber of Commerce Facebook page and look for the initial Tag-A-Teacher post. Tag a teacher and tell why you think they are deserving of the prize. The teacher must then share the post to be entered into the campaign. All entries will be placed into a spreadsheet and from there a winner will be drawn.

"We like really seeing the diversity and the talents of all the teachers," Smith said. "It's really fun, and they like to see that too."
