The nomination deadline is Monday, April 18 and all honorees will be announced before the end of the school year.
Two monetary awards will be presented: one to a teacher from the elementary level (PreK-6) and another to a teacher from the secondary level (7-12). The winners will receive a $1,000 grant to be used for a special project at their school, both awards made possible through a generous sponsorship from Phelan Insurance Agency. The third, non-monetary award, will be presented to a Lakota administrator or support staff member who has shown extraordinary commitment to the students and teachers of Lakota Local Schools as well as the community.
The Lakota Educator of Excellence Award was established in 2007 to recognize educators in the Lakota School District who demonstrate consistency and high commitment to students. These individuals motivate, share ideas, inspire, support, create, and go above and beyond to make a difference in the community.
Outstanding educators can be nominated to receive this honor by students, colleagues, parents or any community member who wishes to acknowledge an educator’s exceptional effort during the last school year. Nominations are not limited to classroom teachers and may be either in-person or virtual educators. Teachers will be considered for the two monetary awards, but any administrator, counselor, support staff member, etc. working with young people in the Lakota School District will be considered for the third award.

All nominations must include at least two additional support letters in addition to one submitted by the person filling out the nomination form. Winners are chosen by a committee of representatives from Lakota Local Schools and the Northern Cincinnati Foundation.
