Distinguished Educator Awards Ceremony

Each spring the Student Excellence Foundation recognizes excellence in teaching in District 200. Nominations may be made by any District 200 student, parent/guardian, alum, staff, or community member. A parent or student may nominate more than one educator; however a separate nomination form must be used for each. Any educator is eligible for nomination if he/she is currently employed by District 200; educators are not allowed to nominate themselves. Awards are given to two educators at the preschool/elementary, middle, and high school level.

Congratulations to our previous awardees!
