Prime Minister's Awards - Open For Nominations

November 8, 2016 - The Prime Minister's Awards for Teaching Excellence have honoured exceptional elementary and secondary school teachers in all disciplines since 1993, with over 1,500 teachers honoured to date. Recipients are honoured for their remarkable achievements in education and for their commitment to preparing their students for a digital and innovation-based economy.

Accepting Nominations for 2016

Nominations for this award are currently open and are due by January 9, 2017.  Guidelines on the nomination and a link to the nomination form can be found here.

For most, at least one teacher stands out in our memories - someone who encouraged, enabled and inspired us to do our very best. Teachers play a tremendous role, not only in the academic achievement of students, but in the skills, attitudes and abilities they carry with them beyond the classroom.

Nominators may be any person or group with direct knowledge of the nominee's contribution (e.g. parent, school principal, supervisor, fellow teacher, etc.). 

"Great teachers are curious. They are constantly searching for new knowledge, new ways of explaining tough concepts, and new ways to engage their students."  - Rt. Hon. Justin Trudeau, Prime Minister of Canada

The Prime Minister's Awards (PMA) for Teaching Excellence honour outstanding and innovative elementary and secondary school teachers in all disciplines for their remarkable educational achievements and for their commitment to preparing their students for a digital and innovation-based economy.
