Awards to Saskatchewan teachers, who are current or past funding source members, in recognition of outstanding contributions to education and the teaching profession. These awards will recognize individual teachers for work that is broad and significant in scope and impact.
The Arbos award is the highest honor that the Saskatchewan teaching profession can bestow. Each Arbos includes honorary life membership in the Federation and is formalized with the presentation of an artistic replica of the Arbos symbol at a banquet held during the Federation’s Annual Meeting of Council.
Through the Arbos awards, the Federation draws the attention of its members and the public to individuals who have distinguished themselves through the scope, impact and significance of their educational contributions to public education and to the teaching profession.
There are three types of Arbos awards, all of equal importance and prestige:
1) The Arbos for Contributions to Education and the Teaching Profession honors teachers who have made outstanding contributions to education and the teaching profession that are broad and significant in their scope and impact. The recipient of this award is selected from nominations submitted by local associations, special subject councils, teachers, trustees, directors of education, teacher educators or officials in educational organizations. A selection committee of teachers forwards the name of one of the nominees to the STF Executive as the recommended recipient for this award.
2) The Arbos for Contributions to the Professional Organization honors individuals who have made contributions to the professional organization at the provincial, national and/or international levels. This award is given at the discretion of the STF Executive.
3) The Arbos for Distinguished Support of Education and the Teaching Profession honors individuals who are not members of the Saskatchewan Teachers’ Federation and who have made significant contributions to education and to the teaching profession through their advocacy and support for teachers and for public education. This award is given at the discretion of the STF Executive.
Award recipients must have demonstrated exemplary professional conduct and any or all of the following:
-Recognized leadership or inspirational conduct with a positive impact on students, teachers, schools, communities, educational organizations or public education.
-Innovation or achievement in an education-related field that brings honor to the teaching profession.
-Dedicated service to teachers and the teaching profession that may include but is not limited to intensive involvement in the professional organization.
-Outstanding contributions to education that may be either cumulative or specific in nature.
-Contributions that are generally recognized as being broad and significant in scope and/or impact.
