The Bay Area Chamber of Commerce believes that great education and a great economy go hand in hand. Thriving businesses support a healthy education and graduates who are work or college ready in turn support our local businesses and community. It is our goal to build bridges between business and education throughout the Bay Area. To that end, we are looking for nominations for three Educator Awards which are handed out annually:
Innovation in Teaching is for educators that are on the cutting edge and may form exciting community or business partnerships or utilize technology to improve learning.
Contributor to Education is for educators who contribute to the learning of students by their tireless efforts, time and dedication.
Unsung Hero is for educators recognized for their dedication to making sure students graduate. Regardless of their titles, they are all heroes to the students they help reach the goals of diploma or degree.
From these three honorees a Bay Area Educator of the Year is selected and will be honored at the annual Chamber of Commerce Awards Banquet the last Saturday in January. The two runners up will be recognized at our monthly luncheons following the banquet.
This is a great way to recognize that individual educator that has made a difference in a student’s life. Anyone can make a nomination and nominations can be made any time during the year but the deadline for submission is November 30th. The form is accessible online at www.oregonsbayarea.org or you can click here. Contact the Chamber office at 541-266-0868 for more information.
