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. Email Jeannette Dodds at the GEETF office if you have any questions.
Nominations are due by May 28, 2021
