Nominations can be made by parents, students, school trustees, fellow teachers, schools and school division administrators by the December 2nd deadline. All nominees must be educators who hold a valid permanent Manitoba teaching certificate and must also work directly with kindergarten to grade twelve students in a school setting on a daily basis.
