The community is being asked to put forward the names of dedicated and inspiring professionals who are contributing to making our public schools and preschools world-class, with nominations for the 2019 Public Education Awards now open.
Awards will be given out in 10 categories this year which includes a ‘Teacher of the Year’ category for secondary, primary and early years.
The 10 winners will receive $10,000, while 20 runners-up will receive $2,000 to go towards professional development.
Awards ambassador Eddie Betts is continuing his commitment to being part of this fantastic program that recognises the individuals and teams helping to improve the learning outcomes of children and young people in public education.
Eddie will be encouraging students, parents and the wider community to nominate an outstanding and dedicated person or team working in public education, both in teaching and non-teaching roles, who they believe deserves recognition.
Nominations are open until Friday 31 May. Finalists will be revealed in August and the overall winners will be announced at a ceremony in October.
You can also visit the nomination stalls at Westfield Marion on the weekend of 11-12 May and Elizabeth Shopping Centre on Saturday 25 May.
