GEETF Awards and Nominations

GEETF Awards

 

We are now accepting nominations for our GEETF Awards.

Please consider nominating a teacher, or group of educators, who are making a difference in the lives of children through their leadership, initiative, or collaboration on a project that involves students, the school and/or the broader community. It's not difficult to make a nomination. It is good for all of us to celebrate the wonderful things going on in our schools!

Please think about what is being done in your school with the arts, the environment, humanitarian work/aid, and anti-poverty initiatives. The award does include a monetary donation to further support the project being awarded. We look forward to receiving your nominations. We will be able to recognize up to two winners in each of the four categories. One of which does not have to be a GEETF member.

All nominees will be invited to celebrate their nomination with a complementary dinner ticket to our annual Celebration Dinner in June of 2016 at Petofi Hungarian Cultural Centre in Brantford.

Nominations are due at the GEETF office by May 15th.

Please email or call the GEETF office if you have any questions.
