The Partnership Awards

Online nomination form Deadline: Jan. 31, 2019

The Partnership Plan is accepting nominations for Partnership Awards to honor teachers and staff of Stillwater Area Public Schools.

The Partnership Awards are annual honors to recognize representatives of the many teachers and staff who create such a wonderful learning environment for our students. Teachers and support staff can be nominated by community members, students, parents or colleagues.

The award recipients are selected by committee through a nomination process. Awards are divided to represent staffing: two from early childhood/elementary teachers, two from secondary teachers, two from retired staff members, and two current support staff. All current and past employees of Independent School District 834 are eligible for nomination, if they haven’t previously received a Partnership Award. Please note that administrators, such as principals, do not qualify for these awards.

Each Partnership Award recipient designates a $1,000 grant from The Partnership Plan to the building of his or her choice.

Applications are due on Jan. 31, 2019, and a banquet to honor the individuals will be held in April 2019. Honorees will be informed individually beginning in early March, and a general announcement will be made after all teachers and staff have been notified.
