BP is accepting nominations for the BP Teachers of Excellence program, which recognizes Alaska teachers’ exceptional work.
In addition to honoring teachers for the 22nd year, the program is also accepting nominations for unsung heroes in Alaska’s schools, such as principals, counselors, teacher assistants or others. Anyone can nominate a BP Teacher of Excellence or the new BP Educational Allies award by visiting BPteachers.com. The deadline for nominations is Feb. 1, 2017.
The program honors K-12 teachers and other school staff from public or private schools who have made important contributions to education and their communities. Each BP Teacher of Excellence will receive $500 and a $500 matching grant to their school. BP will select one Teacher of the Year who will receive a $1,500 scholarship for continuing education. Educational Allies will also receive a cash award and recognition at the annual awards ceremonies in the spring.
Since the program’s inception in 1995, BP has recognized more than 680 Alaska teachers and receives more than 1,000 nominations each year.
