Third Annual Awards Honour B.C.’s Finest Education Professionals

14 Jan, 2020

    Nominations are open for the third annual Premier’s Awards for Excellence in Education, a chance to recognize the British Columbian teachers, administrators and support workers who are making a positive impact on students and their school communities.


    “We value the extraordinary commitment to excellence shown by B.C. education professionals who care for the well-being of all of their students,” said Premier John Horgan.

     

    “By offering this awards program for the last three years, we have been able to continue to shine an important light on the individuals who are working hard to make a difference in the lives of B.C. students and celebrate the incredible difference they are making every day.”


    Government created the annual awards program in 2018 to honour the contributions of education professionals who go above and beyond to make life better for students in British Columbia. They are open to public, independent and First Nations school-system teachers, principals, vice-principals, administrators and support staff in the K-12 school system.


    This year, six awards are open to any B.C. teacher certificate holder, two awards are open to any B.C. teacher certificate holder currently in a district or school leadership role and two awards are open to any support staff member.


    “The teachers, administrators and support staff who have been honoured by the Premier’s Awards for Excellence in Education are truly inspiring,” said Rob Fleming, Minister of Education. “This awards program gives us an opportunity to celebrate the amazing things happening in classrooms throughout B.C. and the many ways students are benefiting from new ideas and approaches to K-12 education.”


    Winners will receive a $3,000 personal bursary for professional learning, a $2,000 contribution to the winner’s school community for professional learning and a commemorative work of art designed by a B.C. student. Each runner up will receive a $1,000 personal bursary for professional learning and a $1,000 contribution to their school community for professional learning.


    Nominations will be accepted until April 30, 2020. Finalists will be announced in May. Winners will be announced at an award ceremony in Victoria, timed with World Teachers’ Day in October.
