All educators who have classroom teaching responsibilities at one of our ten partner institutions in Ottawa are eligible to be nominated for a Capital Educators’ Award. The Capital Educators’ Awards recognize the achievements of outstanding educators and celebrates public education in our community – across the entire spectrum from kindergarten to PhD. Award recipients are announced at a gala dinner and ceremony each spring, aptly called EduGala.
Finalists are selected by the participating institutions. A community panel of judges then selects the award recipients. All finalists are invited to attend EduGala, and the Award recipients are announced that evening.
