What are
The CARE Awards?

Welcome to the CARE Awards! In response to the challenges that COVID-19 brought to educators in 2020, we created these awards to honor teachers who have demonstrated exceptional qualities during these difficult times. We recognize those who have shown curiosity, adaptability, resilience, and empathy in their interactions with their students.

Effective and memorable teachers possess a multitude of qualities. They strive to spread positivity, find joy in teaching, and actively engage with their students. They are reflective, open to change, and always seeking new ideas to enhance their teaching strategies.

But above all, what sets these teachers apart is their unwavering passion for their profession. At the CARE Awards, we celebrate and recognize the outstanding teachers who go above and beyond in their commitment to education.
