Excellence in Teaching Award — Call for Nominations to Honor Teachers in Rio Arriba County & Pojoaque

Española, NM — Nominations are now accepted for the 2018 Excellence in Teaching Award. In addition to honoring teachers in Rio Arriba County, this year educators in Pojoaque are also eligible.

An engraved plaque and $1000 prize will be given to seven teachers in honor of their dedication and to bring encouragement and support to the education profession.

The program is offered by the nonprofit Los Alamos National Laboratory (LANL) Foundation and Centerra-Los Alamos (CLA), the Laboratory’s protective force contractor.

Qualified nominees must have taught at their current K-12 public, Tribal or charter school in Rio Arriba County or Pojoaque for at least three years. Current and former students, teachers, administrators and other colleagues may submit nominations through the online form at www.lanlfoundation.org/teacheraward by the November 2, 2018 deadline.

Each teacher’s impact on his or her school, students and community; leadership qualities; cultivation of positive culture; and inspiration of lifelong learning in others will be considered by the selection committee, made up of invited community members and staff from sponsoring organizations. Winners will be announced and prizes awarded before the end-of-year break. 

For additional information, please contact Doris Rivera at doris@lanlfoundation.org or 505.753.8890.
