Merit awards of $500 to Montgomery County, Pennsylvania elementary and secondary secondary school teachers for dedication, creativity, skill and other traits of excellence. The goal of the program is to recognize those teachers who exceed expectations in meeting their students' needs.
Twenty-three teachers will be selected as finalists for Freedom's "Voices of Inspiration" Award for Teaching Excellence. This will include one teacher from each public school district in Montgomery County, one teacher from the Montgomery County Intermediate Unit, and one teacher from a Montgomery County non-public school. All twenty-three finalists will be recognized as winners in their respective districts and receive a commemorative award plaque.
Furthermore, one elementary school teacher, one middle school teacher, and one high school teacher will be honored as grand-prize winners and be presented with Freedom's "Voices of Inspiration" Award for Teaching Excellence and an additional $500 each.
All nominations must be submitted on the basis of one or more of the following:
-The excellent performance of daily responsibilities and consistent devotion of time and energy beyond the requirements of a nominee's teaching position.
-The successful completion of an assigned activity, project or program outside the normal responsibilities of a nominee's teaching position.
-Initiating, implementing, or administering a new or innovative idea that substantially benefits the students and/or schools of nominee's school district or Montgomery County at large.
-Providing exceptional assistance and/or support to school and/or student-related activities, projects or programs.
-Exemplary efforts that inspire a spirit of cooperation among those employed by a public school, which foster commitment to provide the highest quality of service to others, and that clearly demonstrate an extraordinary dedication to the education of children.
The three schools (one elementary school, one middle school, and one high school) in Montgomery County, with the most nominations will win a cash prize for their school to use for any educational purpose; the school with the most nominations will receive $500, and the two runners-up will receive $250 each.
