Nomination Deadline for Neosho Gold STAR Teacher Awards Next Tuesday, April 30th, 2014



The Education Committee of the Neosho Area Chamber of Commerce has announced that the nomination deadline for the 2014 Gold STAR Award for Superior Teaching Achievements and Recognition is Tuesday, April 30th, 2014.

Anyone may nominate a teacher by completing a nomination form. Nomination forms are available at all R-5 Schools, Crowder College, Neosho Christian Schools, and the Chamber Office.

A nominee must be a certified teacher, who instructs students on a daily basis. He or she must be teaching during the current school year in a public or private school in the Neosho School District. The nominee must not be a previous winner of the Gold STAR Award.

The nomination form should simply state why you feel the teacher should be a candidate for the Gold STAR Award. It might include how the teacher has affected a particular student or situation, the teacher's professionalism, the teacher's ability to instill in his or her students the challenge to do their best and to reach their full potential.

Our Chamber has long recognized the great contributions good teachers make in the lives of our youth and the fostering of future leaders in our communities, state and nation. Most successful people have been strongly influenced by the dedication, wisdom, and enthusiasm of one or more teachers in their lives. It is for this reason that the Neosho Area Chamber of Commerce annually recognizes teachers who exemplify the highest standards of the teaching profession.

The completed nomination form must be delivered or mailed to the Chamber no later than Tuesday, April 30, 2014. One Elementary Teacher (PK-4), one Middle School Teacher (5-7), one Jr. High Teacher (8), and one High School Teacher (9-12) from the Neosho R-5 School District, one teacher from a Private School, and one teacher from Crowder College will be selected for the award.
