The Ministry of Education and Child Care has recently announced the 2023 Premier’s Awards for Excellence in Education Nominations.  These awards were created to recognize the enormous contributions of BC’s exceptional teachers, administrators and support staff that are vital to the cultural, economic and social well-being of the province.

The Premier’s Awards provide students, parents, teachers and other members of the community with an opportunity to celebrate those who make a real difference in BC Schools.  These awards are presented annually to exceptional educational professionals in BC’s school system working within the public, independent or First Nations school systems.

This year, three award recipients will be chosen for each of the 10 categories to choose from to nominate an individual who works in the public, independent or First Nations school systems as teachers, principals, vice principals, administrators and support staff.

Each recipient will receive a taxable personal bursary for professional learning and a contribution to their school community for professional learning.  Recipients will be celebrated at a special event this Fall.

Nominations are now open and are welcome from all BC citizens, including students, parents, teachers, administrators, trustees and community organizations.  The deadline to submit nominations is May 5, 2023.
