Celebrate our Champions in Education!

It is 2015 ACE (A Champion in Education) Awards time and the website is now open for your nominations!

Could your school use $1,000? Do you know an amazing teacher, administrator, classified employee or volunteer? If you answered yes, head over to the ACE website  theaceawards.org  and nominate someone today! Nominations are due on Sunday, March 8th.    Check out this flyer – ACE Flyer 2015

Every complete nomination will garner recognition for the exceptional person who was nominated, and on April 28th during the ACE Awards ceremony, one Springfield nominee in each category will win a cash award of $1,000 to support education at his or her school.

Anyone can submit a nomination: employees, parents, student and community members. We all know employees and volunteers who make a difference for students every day, and this is a great way to recognize them.  NOTE:  Students can nominate their favorite staff member at their school.

The ACE Awards program is a collaboration among the Eugene, Bethel, and Springfield school districts and the Eugene and Springfield chambers of commerce to honor exceptional teachers, administrators, classified staff members, and volunteers from each school district.

We hope you will take advantage of this opportunity to celebrate our Champions in Education and win a prize for your school!
