United Way of Acadiana announces nominations are now open for the 2023 United Way of Acadiana Teacher Awards. Nominations will be open to December 16th, 2022!
These awards seek to recognize educators who are academically inspiring, dedicated to all students’ growth and achievement, and who are resilient and creative in their chosen profession. Nominees must be an active, full-time educator in a Lafayette Parish public, charter, private, or parochial school system.
Categories include Elementary School, Middle School, High School, and Inspirational. Selections for the 2023 Honorees will include two parts. All nominated educators will be recognized at a surprise Pin Patrol. Then, to be considered for selection as a finalist honoree, nominated teachers will be asked to complete a post-nomination form, which provides the selections committee with additional insight into their educational achievements.
All nominated teachers and finalists will be celebrated at an in-person ceremony to be held on March 16, 2023. United Way of Acadiana is honored to host the Teacher Awards for the third consecutive year as part of Education Week festivities.
