The Ministry of Education announced the 2020 Premier’s Awards for Excellence in Education in late January 2020. The 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.

The awards are presented annually to exceptional education professionals in BC’s school system working within the public, independent or First Nations school systems.

This year there are 10 categories to choose from to nominate an individual. The awards are open to all education professionals within the BC K-12 public, independent or First Nations school systems.

Winners will receive a $3,000 taxable personal bursary for professional learning, and a $2,000 contribution to their school community for professional learning. Runners up will receive a $1,000 taxable personal bursary for professional learning, and a $1,000 contribution to their school community for professional learning.

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 April 30, 2020.

Additional information on the awards, including a downloadable poster and brochure can be found on the Premier’s Awards for Excellence in Education website at www.gov.bc.ca/excellenceineducation (click on link to access website).
