The OTIP Teaching Awards
Want to recognize a teacher who does great work in the school? Then, this is the place for you.
Ontario has a publicly funded education system which is recognized for its excellence around the world. This excellence is, in large part, due to the teachers who light sparks in students, inspire their colleagues and hearten parents. The OTIP Teaching Awards recognize these teachers.
Anyone can nominate a teacher in Ontario's publicly funded schools, including public, Catholic, and francophone school boards.
You can nominate a teacher in one of three categories: elementary, secondary, or a beginning teacher in the first five years of teaching.
Winning teachers are hosted at a fall awards ceremony in Toronto where they are presented with a personal award of $1,000 and a Certificate of Recognition. Their schools are recognized as well with a $1,000 prize and a Certificate of Recognition.
Deadline for submitting nominations is March 31 of each year.
