Nominate an outstanding teacher in your school for an R.E.B. Award of up to $12,000. Teachers from Chesterfield, Hanover and Henrico counties, the city Richmond and the Department of Juvenile Justice’s Division of Education (in the metro Richmond area) are eligible.
The R.E.B. awards are designed to identify, recognize, and support teaching excellence in the metropolitan Richmond public school systems. Professional development grants ranging from $4,000 to $12,000 each will be awarded to teachers who have distinguished themselves by their inspiring classroom performance. Recipients will be required to share educational ideas and experiences with students and fellow teachers.
The Community Foundation invites nominations from students, parents, colleagues, school personnel and administrators (except for the school Principal), and the community at-large. The eleven-member Steering Committee will review each nomination to determine final candidates. Final candidates will be asked to submit proposals and participate in an interview describing use of the award.
Information for nominations, including nomination forms, are available here. The nomination deadline is Feb. 26 at 5 p.m.
