Awarding Our Staff


The Foundation recognizes the hard work of our North Platte Public Schools employees with annual awards for the year's most outstanding teacher, staff member and administrator.


The North Platte Public Schools Foundation is now accepting nominations for Teacher of the Year, Staff Member of the Year and Administrator of the Year. Nominations are due February 25, 2019.

Nominations should be submitted to the North Platte Public School Foundation, 301 W. F, North Platte, NE 69101 or through the Foundation website (at the link below). The nomination form link can be found below, or print copies of the form can be picked up at each school in the district or at the Foundation office.

These awards recognize and encourage superior professional effort to improve instruction and to cultivate the continuation of education excellence in our schools. Teacher and Staff Member Award Winners will receive a plaque and a $250 cash award. Administrators will receive a plaque and $1,000 extra budget authority for their building/administrative area.

Nominees must be current teachers, administrators, specialists, counselors, or support staff members (secretaries, custodians, para educators, bus drivers, food service, etc) in the North Platte Public School District. Three awards will be made.

Nominations for the awards may be received from students, parents, community members and employees of the North Platte Public School District by using our online or print nomination form. Educators and staff members who are nominated will be notified. A selection committee composed of the Foundation’s executive director and community representatives from the Foundation’s Board of Directors will select the award winners.

The awards presentation takes place at the Foundation’s annual Education After Hours event held each spring.
