The McLeod River Post - - Viewpoint -

Jim Eglin­ski, Mem­ber of Par­lia­ment for Yel­low­head, is pleased to in­vite lo­cal res­i­dents to nom­i­nate a teacher for the Prime Min­is­ter’s Awards for Teach­ing Ex­cel­lence. These awards hon­our out­stand­ing and in­no­va­tive el­e­men­tary and se­condary school teach­ers for their re­mark­able ed­u­ca­tional achieve­ments and for their com­mit­ment to pre­par­ing their stu­dents for a dig­i­tal and in­no­va­tion based econ­omy. There are two streams:

The Prime Min­is­ter’s Awards for Teach­ing Ex­cel­lence in STEM - These awards rec­og­nize in­spi­ra­tional Science, Tech­nol­ogy, En­gi­neer­ing, and Math­e­mat­ics (STEM) teach­ers at the el­e­men­tary or se­condary school level who keep stu­dents en­gaged in STEM learn­ing and who help de­velop the cul­ture of in­no­va­tion that Canada needs to­day, and in the fu­ture.

The Prime Min­is­ter’s Awards for Ex­cel­lence in Early Child­hood Ed­u­ca­tion - These awards honor out­stand­ing and in­no­va­tive early child­hood ed­u­ca­tors for their lead­er­ship, ex­em­plary early child­hood ed­u­ca­tion prac­tices, and their com­mit­ment to help build the foun­da­tion chil­dren need to make the best pos­si­ble start in life.

Award re­cip­i­ents and their schools could re­ceive cash awards worth up to $5,000 and na­tional recog­ni­tion for their con­tri­bu­tion to ex­cel­lence in ed­u­ca­tion in Canada.

The dead­line to sub­mit a nom­i­na­tion is Jan­uary 14, 2019.

“Teach­ers in­vest so much into our chil­dren and our com­mu­ni­ties. I en­cour­age lo­cal res­i­dents to nom­i­nate an out­stand­ing ed­u­ca­tor from their com­mu­nity who has made a real dif­fer­ence in their life, or the life of one of their chil­dren,” con­cluded MP Eglin­ski.
