Registering for the Awards Ceremony

Each awardee school is permitted to send two (2) individuals to represent their school at the awards ceremony, plus the District Superintendent who will be invited separately. In the event the principal at the time of the school’s nomination and application is no longer the principal this school year, then the principal at the time of nomination is also invited to attend. Each school can decide who they want to represent their school. Some examples are school principal, principal at time of nomination (if different from current principal), teacher or staff, and/or school board member. Principals are responsible for registering all of their school’s attendees using their unique school identifier through the registration form. Registrations must be completed by October 22, 2021. After the principal registers all attendees, a confirmation email will be sent to the principal. Please be sure to bring your registration confirmation email with you to the ceremony as reference.
