2017 REB Awards: Nominate an outstanding teacher


The REB Awards for Teaching Excellence provide a tangible, public way to recognize an outstanding teacher in Henrico County Public Schools. The

Community Foundation’s yearly awards identify, recognize and support teaching excellence in the Richmond area. Honorees receive professional development grants of $4,000 to $12,000, given to teachers who have distinguished themselves by their inspiring classroom performance.

Through a nomination process, approximately 15 outstanding teachers are selected each year to receive cash grants to support professional development activities. Nominations are invited from parents, students, educators and the community at large. Award recipients have earned graduate degrees, climbed mountains, traced their ancestors and met peers from around the world – all to reignite their own passion for learning and to pass it on to their students.

Nominations must be made online.

Who: The Community Foundation invites nominations from students, parents, colleagues, school staff and administrators (except for the school principal), and the community at large.

When: Nominations must be submitted by Feb. 27.

How: Nominations must be submitted through the Community Foundation’s website. For instructions, eligibility criteria and a link to the nomination portal, please visit tcfrichmond.org.
