AWARD NOMINATIONS

CABE invites you to submit candidate applications for Administrator of the Year, Teacher of the Year, Pareducator of the Year, and Parent of the Year, as well as applications for the Seal of Excellence School Awards.  This is an opportunity to honor individuals in each category for their excellence, dedication, cultural sensitivity, high expectations for English learners, and the promotion of bilingual education, and to recognize schools that have established effective programs for English learners and dual language learners.

Encourage students to submit their compositions for the Student Writing Awards for grades K-12 that focus on the many advantages of being bilingual/biliterate.  Please review the grade levels, themes, and requirements in the Student Writing Contest information.

Submission Deadline: December 14, 2022 at 11:59 pm (PST)

All applicants must be active CABE members through March 31, 2023, if submitting for these awards:  Administrator of the Year, Teacher of the Year, Paraeducator of the Year, or Parent of the Year. Seal of Excellence School applicants and Writing Contest students do not need to be active members.
