Community Foundation Seeks Nominations for Excellence in Education Awards

All residents of DeKalb County are encouraged to nominate a deserving individual for an Excellence in Education Award. Awarded annually, the Excellence in Education Awards are a great way to highlight and show appreciation for education professionals in the community. With all the extra work our school districts put in this year due to COVID-19, this is a great way to show educators they’re appreciated. Deadline for community nominations is March 1, 2021.

Nominations are accepted for any of the five categories:

  • Teacher grades Pre-K to 5
  • Teacher grades 6 – 8
  • Teacher grades 9 – 12
  • School support staff
  • School Administration.

A committee of teachers and administrators review each application submitted.

Through a Designated Fund at the DeKalb County Community Foundation, the awards honor and acknowledge outstanding teachers, administrators and support staff from school districts throughout DeKalb County. Award winners receive $1,000 and recognition during an awards ceremony and reception planned for the spring of 2021.
