Nominations of Wisconsin PK through 12 teachers and principals can now be submitted for the 2019 Herb Kohl Educational Foundation Teacher Fellowship and Principal Leadership awards online at kohleducation.org. The deadline for submission is Oct. 8.
Awards are $6,000 with an additional $6,000 grant going to the school of each selected teacher and principal. Teachers or principals must be nominated by a parent, student, other teacher, community member, or school administrator. To be eligible, Wisconsin teachers and principals in grades PK through 12 must plan to continue in their current capacity for at least one year. The Herb Kohl Educational Foundation Fellowship rewards teachers who have demonstrated superior ability to inspire a love of learning in their students, have motivated others, and have provided meritorious service both in and outside the classroom. The Leadership awards recognize and support principals who demonstrate administrative leadership and positively influence school culture.
