The 2014 OfficeMax A Day Made Better program is searching for Australia's most exceptional primary school teachers. Ten teachers who inspire and encourage pupils will be recognised for their work in August, and awarded an iPad and $2000 of art supplies and stationery for their classroom.

Parents, students, friends, teachers, principals and school administrators can nominate someone for the award online.

They must provide their favourite teacher's name, school and details of why they should receive the award.
