Winners are selected monthly and receive recognition and a prize, including a surprise celebration at their school or office.  All you have to do is fill out the form and write a persuasive nomination, explaining why your nominee is deserving of recognition.   The purpose of the program is to identify and recognize educators who are truly outstanding and who recognize the powerful link between student engagement and academic success.
