Nominate a Great Teacher for the Heart of Education Awards

The deadline to nominate a teacher for the Heart of Education Awards is fast approaching: Nomination forms can be submitted online at with an extended nomination period until Friday, February 12, 2021.

Once a nomination has been submitted, each nominated teacher will receive an email notification to complete a separate online application. Teachers will be asked to write a 500-word-or-less essay describing how they have gone above and beyond to support their students.

Myron Martin, president of The Smith Center, told Channel 3’s Krystal Allan that this year’s awards are an opportunity to recognize the unbelievable ways in which CCSD teachers have gone above and beyond in a virtual school setting.

The Smith Center created The Heart of Education Awards in 2015, and the awards are made possible by a long-term commitment from The Rogers Foundation.
