Consortium and United Way name finalists for the 2019 Champions of Learning Awards

Selection Committees for the 2019 Champions of Learning Awards have announced 18 finalists in six categories for 2019. (See complete list.)

“It’s just an outstanding group of candidates” said the Consortium’s Executive Director Mary Kay Babyak. “We want to congratulate all of our finalists and let them know that they emerged from an extremely competitive pool of nominees. We’re really looking forward to celebrating them in May.”

The awards are intended to bring recognition to adults who go above and beyond to give youth in our region outstanding learning opportunities, mentoring or support.

The Consortium and United Way began this year to field nominations and select candidates in partnership. In the past two years, the organizations partnered in the award celebration where winners are announced, but held separate nominating processes and had different categories.

Categories include: Leadership; K-6 Educators; 7-12 Educators; School Staff; Providers/Community Partners; and Volunteers.

Winners in each of the categories will be announced at the Champions of Learning Awards celebration on Thursday, May 2. Make your reservations to attend the event through Eventbrite.
