Celebrate San Diego County Teachers!  

The 28th annual "Cox Presents: A Salute to Teachers," sponsored by San Diego County Credit Union, will be televised LIVE from the Balboa Theatre at 8 p.m. on Sept. 15, 2018. 

For the past 27 years, teachers from across the region have been recognized for their commitment to teaching and learning at the Academy Awards-style extravaganza. The show highlights San Diego County's more than 22,000 public school teachers and features celebrity emcees and presenters, and musical and dance performances. The San Diego County Teachers of the Year announced at the event go on to represent the region at the California Teacher of the Year program. 

General admission tickets for this year's show are $15.50 and are available for purchase online; by calling the Balboa Theatre at 570-1100 (all San Diego area codes); or at the Advance Sales Windows at Third Avenue and B Street from 10 a.m. to 6 p.m. Monday through Friday.
