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 November 1, 2020.
Nominations are accepted for any of the five categories:
A committee of teachers and administrators review each application submitted.
The Excellence in Education Awards are possible through the generosity of retired Sycamore elementary school teacher, Yvonne Johnson. 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.
