Nominations are now open for the Premier’s Awards for Excellence in Education. The Awards are an opportunity to recognize the enormous contributions of education professionals who go above and beyond to make life better for students in British Columbia. “B.C.’s talented teachers, administrators and support workers deserve to be honoured and celebrated for the important work they do,” said Premier John Horgan. “We are focused on investing in British Columbia’s education system, and developing new relationships with our education partners that are built on trust and respect.”

Shortlisted nominees will be announced in late August. Finalists will be invited to an awards ceremony at Government House in Victoria on World Teachers’ Day, Oct. 5, 2018. Premier Horgan and Fleming will be in attendance. Winners will receive a $3,000 personal bursary for professional learning, and a $2,000 contribution to their school community for professional learning.
