Our LifeChangers are committed to creating a safe, healthy environment for students to learn and teachers to work. Unfortunately, school violence is having an increasingly negative, and often tragic, impact on our K-12 education system. We’re doing our part by sponsoring the National Coalition for Safe Schools, and for the upcoming school year, we want to go even further.
We’ll be giving the 2019-2020 Spotlight Award to a LifeChanger who has made a proven impact on school safety. All roles in K-12 education are eligible for this year’s award, but in your nomination, we’d like to know:
How is your LifeChanger creating a safe environment for students to learn?
Maybe your LifeChanger has started an organization that encourages students to be kind. Maybe they’ve created protocols to prevent violent incidents from occuring on campus. However they’re creating a safer school environment, we want to know.
The winner of this award will receive $5,000 to be shared between a $2,500 individual award and a $2,500 donation to their school or district.
In addition to creating a safer atmosphere on campus, nominees must:
Make a positive impact in the lives of students
Enhance their school or district’s atmosphere, culture and pride
Demonstrate exemplary leadership at the school and/or district level
Possess a proven record of professional excellence
Show commitment to building a nurturing environment that supports learning
Adhere to the highest moral and ethical standards
Please note: all Spotlight Award nominees will also be eligible for our other awards.
