ISP Innovator of the Year Nomination Form, 2023-24
We are looking for public school educators in Region 5 (Cass, Crow Wing, Morrison, Todd and Wadena counties) who have demonstrated innovation in the classroom. We are accepting self nominations. We describe innovation as trying something new in an effort to broaden students' learning. This can include, but is not limited to incorporating a new teaching strategy, programming, collaboration, incremental learning and adaptation, or resources used within this school year.
Winner will receive a $1,000 classroom grant!
Nominations are due by February 28, 2024 and will be reviewed by the ISP Board before notifying the recognized educator in early March. The educator's school will be notified at that time. You will be asked for a school photo and brief biography for media coverage due by mid March. The educator will be formally recognized in May at the Sourcewell Educators of Excellence Event.
