Illinois State Board of Education

There are presently no open calls for submissions.

Since 1970, the Illinois State Board of Education has sponsored both the Illinois Teacher of the Year and Those Who Excel programs, to honor educators who have made​​ significant contributions to our state's public and nonpublic elementary and secondary schools. Awards are presented in seven total categories: classroom teachers, early career educators (teachers 1-4 years) school administrator, student support personnel, educational service personnel, community volunteer and teams. Nomination materials are evaluated by a selection committee comprised of individuals who represent a variety of educational organizations. For questions about either program, visit our website or reach out to programs coordinator, Jeff Seiler at jseiler@isbe.net. 

Please note: If this is your first time using the Submittable platform to complete a nomination packet, you will be required to create an account with Submittable.
