    Event Description:
    Each year, the Midland Chamber of Commerce honors outstanding educators and school support staff from our local schools. Every local campus is invited to nominate an outstanding classroom teacher & an “Unsung Hero” - a non-classroom staff member whose efforts enhance  the quality of education on their campus. A panel of judges will review nominations, with all identifying information redacted to ensure an objective decision. The panel selects a winner for each of the following categories:
    • Excellence in Teaching - Elementary Educator
    • Excellence in Teaching - Secondary Educator
    • Unsung Hero
    Each winner receives a substantial cash award of $2500!
    Plus, each nominee will receive a gift valued at $50.
