The Milken Family Foundation is currently announcing the recipients of its Milken Educator Awards, given to up to 80 outstanding educators.
On Oct. 6, Principal Nicole Law, from Garden City Elementary School in Indianapolis, became the first outstanding educator to receive the award, which comes with a $25,000 prize. In coming weeks, educators will be notified that they’ve won at surprise school assemblies. The Milken Family Foundation presents the prizes to winning educators during its annual National Education Conference.
A list of recipients is available here.
Winning educators are recommended by a panel appointed by their state’s department of education. More information about the Milken Educator Award, including criteria for selection, is available through the Milken Family Foundation Web site.
