Inspiring Excellence Awards

Inspiring Excellence


Inspiring excellence involves accepting the responsibility of consistently offering your very best to the people around you. In addition to making a difference in your daily interactions, those inspiring excellence have the unwavering commitment to being the difference. 

The Inspiring Excellence Awards are the highest recognition for HPEDSB employees who make significant contributions to student achievement and well-being through their commitment to and leadership in education.  

Inspiring Excellence recipients will be determined based on their contributions and how their actions align with two goals of the 2020-2025 Strategic Plan:

  • Improve student success and achievement
  • Foster a culture of excellence and high expectations
  • Promote safety and well-being
  • Strengthen community through equity and social justice
  • Ensure responsible communication

Nominations may be made by any HPEDSB employee, with the support of two other people (e.g., other staff, students, parents/guardians, community members), who will be asked to submit short letters detailing specific reasons for the nomination and their alignment with two of the Strategic Plan goals shared above. Self-nominations are not permitted.

Students may provide supporting nominations. Students interested in submitting a nomination must secure an HPEDSB employee sponsor to provide the main nomination. 

The nominator for each award recipient will be asked to read a section of their nomination submission at the Inspiring Excellence celebration on May 4. More details to come!
