The Carroll County Chamber of Commerce Seeks Nominations for the Twenty-Second Annual Outstanding Teacher Awards.

The Carroll County Chamber of Commerce is seeking nominations for the twenty-second annual Outstanding Teacher Awards.  The deadline for nominations is February 1, 2010. 

The Outstanding Teacher Awards recognize the men and women of the Carroll County Public School System who represent excellence in the teaching profession.  Any full-time elementary, middle, high school, career & technology, or special education teacher, counselor or media specialist in the Carroll County Public School System is eligible for nomination.  Any parent, student, fellow teacher, or school administrator may submit a nomination.   Nominators are urged to think of teachers who have made a difference in their life or a student’s life.  The nomination form includes three questions requiring specific examples of ways the teacher inspires students to learn, build confidence and self esteem, and apply what they have learned to real-world situations.  All eligible nominees will be recognized at the Outstanding Teacher Reception and Award Program on March 24, 2010.   Eight award recipients will be named at the reception.  These teachers will form the group from which the Carroll County Teacher of the Year will be chosen.  That candidate will represent Carroll County in the Maryland Teacher of the Year Program.

Nominations must be received (not just postmarked) by Monday, February 1, before 5:00 p.m. at the Chamber of Commerce office at 700 Corporate Center Court, Suite L, Westminster, MD 21157.  Nominations received after 5:00 p.m. on this date will not be considered.  Please do not mail or deliver nomination forms to Carroll County Public Schools.  Nomination forms are available by clicking here.  Nominations may also be completed and submitted online through the Chamber’s website at http://www.carrollcountychamber.org/ota2008.html.

The Outstanding Teacher Awards are made possible through the donation of Chamber members and Carroll County PTA/PTO organizations.
