Through a nomination process, approximately 15 outstanding teachers are selected each year to receive professional development grants of $4,000 to $12,000. Award recipients have earned graduate degrees, climbed mountains, traced their ancestors and met peers from around the world – all to reignite their own passion for learning and to pass it on to their students.
The Community Foundation invites nominations from students, parents, colleagues, school staff and administrators (except for the school principal), and the community at large. Nominations must be made online and be accompanied by a letter in support of the nomination, written by another individual and submitted online with the nomination.
Nominations and letters of support must be submitted through the Community Foundation’s website by Feb. 25 by 5 p.m.
