observations and interviews

Semi-finalists advance to

live classroom and school observations conducted by past winners of the award.

And our finalists

participate in multiple

panel interviews, some

with past winners, as well.

The first step in our process to ensuring that all children receive an exemplary education is to identify the educators and the strengths they bring with them into the classroom. 

Our merit-based awards program has a rigorous application

process designed to identify educators who demonstrate 

increases in student achievement, enhancement of

student self-esteem, and collaboration with

community stakeholders.

Nominees are asked to outline a project they'd like

funded that will help them make an even greater

impact in their classrooms or schools.
