/PRNewswire/ -- The Turnaround Management Association, the premier nonprofit organization representing the corporate restructuring industry, is accepting applications for the 2010 Butler-Cooley Excellence in Teaching Award.

The program recognizes K-12 classroom teachers who have changed students' lives and the communities where they teach. Established in 2004 with a grant from the John Wm. Butler Foundation, Inc., the award is named in honor of Leslie Bender Butler and Cindy Butler Cooley, relatives of a former TMA chairman and teachers who collectively have spent more than 50 years influencing children's lives.

TMA will award a $5,000 cash stipend and cover travel and lodging expenses for one teacher to attend the TMA 2010 Spring Conference, April 20-22, at the Sheraton New York Hotel and Towers in New York, NY. Entries are due February 1.
