Kelly Clarkson is teaming up with Norwegian Cruise Line in celebrating and rewarding educators as part of the “Norwegian’s Giving Joy,” annual recognition program hosted by Norwegian Cruise Line (NCL), the innovator in global cruise travel.
In honour of Teacher Appreciation Week (May 2 to May 6, 2022), the songstress and TV host and producer concluded a week-long on-air celebration recognizing educators on her critically acclaimed program, “The Kelly Clarkson Show,” by announcing that she would be joining this year’s Norwegian’s Giving Joy winners aboard Norwegian Cruise Line’s record-breaking new ship, Norwegian Prima.
Clarkson will perform during the award ceremony honouring these top 100 teachers across the U.S. and Canada, when the ship debuts in her home state of Texas on Oct. 27, 2022.
The annual program which recognizes the connection between travel and education and celebrates teachers for their unwavering dedication to inspiring students every day, has awarded 130 teachers with free cruises and over $185,000 to schools since 2019.
This year, 100 teachers across the U.S. and Canada will win an exclusive sailing aboard the Cruise Line’s newest groundbreaking ship, Norwegian Prima, during the inaugural five-day sailing from Galveston, Texas from Oct. 27 to Oct. 31, 2022.
In addition, the top three grand prize winners will receive an additional seven-day voyage for two from the U.S. or Canada, as well as a $25,000, $15,000 and $10,000 donation respectively for their school.
Norwegian Cruise Line is encouraging nominations of certified or accredited teachers in the U.S. and Canada now through June 3, 2022.
