Foundation / Corporation
Awards to Alaska teachers and educators to recognize outstanding efforts to inspire students and enhance the learning experience. Nominations are invited on behalf of individuals whose work offers a model for teaching, learning, and leadership in schools and communities throughout the state.
Now, additional unsung heroes can also be recognized with the Educational Allies Award – honoring anyone from a principal, school nurse, volunteer, teacher’s assistant or others who are shaping Alaska’s next generation.
Nominations can be received for Alaska teachers from every community in the state. Teachers will be recognized in five regions: Anchorage, Fairbanks, Mat-Su Valley, Kenai Peninsula and outlying areas (everywhere else).
You can nominate other individuals making a difference in your school for the Educational Allies Award, such as a principal, school nurse, custodian, teacher assistant, tutor, parent volunteer or others.

Please provide specific examples on how this unsung hero is making a difference at your school and why they should be recognized as a BP Educational Ally.
