BURNABY – The Ministry of Education announced this week that nominations are now open for the 2019 Premier’s Awards for Excellence in Education.

“The K-12 Presidents Council is pleased that the work our members do in schools throughout B.C. is recognized,” said CUPE K-12 Presidents Council President Warren Williams. “Adding another support category makes these awards inclusive and open to all CUPE members.”

The government has added another category, Outstanding Support – School Community for support staff. This award is eligible to CUPE members who work as bus drivers, crossing guards, student supervisors, aboriginal cultural facilitators, custodians, maintenance/tradespeople, and clerical workers. Education assistants and Aboriginal support workers are eligible in the Outstanding Support – Teaching Assistant category.

The criteria for both awards include contributing to a healthy, safe and productive school community; creating an engaging and exciting environment; building collaborative relationships with other education professionals; and supporting students.

Full details on categories and how to nominate someone are available online.

Nomination forms are also available.

The Premier’s Awards for Excellence in Education were created to recognize the contribution and celebrate teachers, administrators and support staff who make a difference in B.C. schools and who are “vital to the cultural, economic and social well-being of the province.” Nominations close on March 31, 2019.
