Nominate an HCPS educator for the 2024 REB Award for Teaching Excellence

Nominations and letters of support must be submitted online by Feb. 20 at 5 p.m.

Central Virginia recipients of the REB Awards for Teaching Excellence have earned graduate degrees, climbed mountains, studied the effects of climate change, 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. Each of their REB journeys started with a nomination.

Nominate the special Henrico County Public Schools teacher in your life for an REB Award for Teaching Excellence. Nominations are due Feb. 20 at 5 p.m. The annual awards identify, recognize and support teaching excellence in the Richmond area. They provide a tangible, public way to recognize outstanding HCPS instructors — and give them the means to continue growing. The grant-funded awards are presented by the Community Foundation. Honorees receive professional development grants, given to teachers who have distinguished themselves by their inspiring classroom performance. Grants range from $5,000 to $15,000.

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. Individuals may nominate only one teacher. Teachers may not be nominated by their principal and may not nominate themselves.

Nominations must be made online. A letter in support of the nomination must be written by another individual and submitted online with the nomination.

The Community Foundation invites nominations from students, parents, colleagues, school staff and administrators (except for the school principal), and members of the community.

Nominations and letters of support must be submitted online by Feb. 20 at 5 p.m.
