Last Chance: Nominate Your Favorite Teacher for Our Teacher Appreciation Giveaway

May 3-7 was Teacher Appreciation Week, and as part of the celebration, three lucky nominated Illinois educators will win a two-night stay at this historic Frank Lloyd Wright home. Educators play a critical role in cultivating and molding our children’s lives in a positive direction, and this giveaway is a way for us to show our gratitude.

On Monday, May 24, three nominations will be chosen at random, and each teacher will receive a 2-night stay at Emil Bach House, an Emil Bach House tote bag, DVD and book (Frank Lloyd Wright’s $10,000 Home), and a $20.00 Charmer’s Café gift card.

Located in Chicago’s Rogers Park neighborhood, just steps from Lake Michigan, Frank Lloyd Wright designed this richly conceived yet intimately scaled residence in 1915 for Emil Bach, president of Chicago’s Bach Brick Co. In contrast to the expansive, open Prairie houses Wright designed, the Bach House is strongly centered and self-contained. This home is the only remaining example of Frank Lloyd Wright’s late prairie-style houses that combined a series of geometric cubes, cantilevered flat roofs, open living areas, and extensive use of natural materials.

This historic home sleeps up to six guests and features a full kitchen, two full bathrooms, outdoor sun deck, screened-in porch, Japanese tea house, and beautifully landscaped gardens.

Help us say thanks to your favorite teacher and nominate that special person today! To access the nomination form and for more information on rules and regulations, please visit
