Award to an outstanding Nebraska PreK-12 classroom teacher, and $1,000 grants to award finalists to recognize the contributions and achievements of classroom teachers. Eligible candidates should be dedicated, skilled, and knowledgeable; have the respect and admiration of parents, colleagues, and students; play active and useful roles in the community as well as in the school; be poised and articulate; and possess the energy to withstand a busy schedule.
Although the selection committee will consider all items on the application, effective classroom teaching and the capability to inspire students of all backgrounds and abilities to learn are the most important qualifications.
In order to encourage innovative educational programs to benefit students and local school districts, the Nebraska State Board of Education awards a $1,000 grant to each of the finalists so that each honored teacher can pursue an educational project of special interest. In the past, teachers and their students have acquired (or produced) special curriculum materials, purchased classroom technological equipment, acquired new skills through attendance at seminars, studied arts and humanities, sponsored student field trips, and purchased unique items not otherwise budgeted for (such as art work for display and a school sign for placement outside a new building).
