GRAND ISLAND, Neb. (Press Release) - The Grand Island Public Schools Foundation is accepting nominations for Teacher of the Year, Staff Member of the Year, and Administrator of the Year. The program is sponsored by First National Bank. The deadline for 2021-2022 school year nominations is May 20.

“In a world that has been turned upside down these past two years, the GIPS teachers and staff have persevered and held true to their core values which are to nurture, educate and give each child a safe space to grow and learn. They have demonstrated Grand Island Tenacity or GRIT in such a graceful manner. This program gives us the mechanism to reach out to the community and help them recognize these educators. Anyone can nominate a GIPS Staff Member. All nominations are shared with those who were nominated,” said Traci Skalberg, Executive Director.

Nominees must be current teachers, principals, administrators, specialists, counselors, or support staff members (secretaries, custodians, para-educators, food service etc.) in the Grand Island Public Schools. Six awards will be made. Awards will be presented in August at the Back to School celebration.

Nomination forms are available on the Grand Island Public Schools Foundation website, https://gipsfoundation.org/what-we-do/teacher-of-the-year.html

Nominations should include the following information:

  • Teacher, Principal, or Staff Member’s name
  • Subject/grade taught, or job duty
  • Name of school where teacher, staff member, or principal is employed
  • Name, address, phone number and e-mail address of person submitting nomination
  • An explanation of why the teacher, principal, or staff member deserves to be named Teacher of the Year, Staff Member of the Year, or Administrator of the Year
