Excellence in Education


Deadline to submit nominations: April 15, 2021

Education-Awards-sidebarYou know that special person who works or volunteers in a school that has dedicated his/her life to inspire and improve the lives of the school children of Yuma County. This award program is designed to honor the thousands of people that are not teachers, but are as dedicated, and as worthy of recognition as those hard working teachers. These people are aides, volunteers, staffers, office personnel, and administrators. Please help us to honor their work by nominating someone.

The S. June Pallack Excellence in Education Awards, presented by the Yuma County Chamber of Commerce, came about through the cooperation and collaboration of the volunteers of the Education Awards Committee of the Chamber. We began the conversation thinking of honoring classrooms. Then we talked about honoring over a dozen different categories of individuals that work behind the scenes to improve the lives of our school children every day. We then settled on the six categories you see here on the nomination form.
