School district looking for nominations for Owl Award

The committee will recommend to the board of education the individual, group or organization worthy of the award for this year.

Those eligible to be nominated need to have made significant, system-wide contributions to public education in SD73 in the past five years or more, with a positive impact on the development of students, parents and teachers in the areas such as learning, athletics and fine arts.

Nomination packages are to be sent to the SD73 office by Oct. 31. The package should include a completed nomination form, three letters of reference, an overview of their qualifications and a description (two pages maximum) of how this individual, group or organization has affected public education in School District 73. 

Nomination forms can be downloaded from the school district website

Last year’s award went to Nathan Matthew, who is chancellor at Thompson Rivers University.
