IMESD Seeks Crystal Apple Award Nominations


The InterMountain Education Service District is now accepting nominations for the 2014 Crystal Apple “Excellence in Education” Awards.

The awards recognize individuals who help to make our schools and students successful. More than 50 education staff will be honored this year.

The awards are open to all classified and licensed/certified staff in Umatilla, Morrow and Union county school districts. It is not open to administrators, though administrators are encouraged to nominate employees. The honor may be awarded to individuals who work full-time or part-time in any capacity other than administration. The staff member must have worked in his or her current position for at least one year to qualify. Anyone in the general public may submit a nomination.

In addition to the Crystal Apple Awards, nominations also are being accepted for the Doug Flatt Memorial Leadership Award, which recognizes an outstanding administrator (such as a principal or superintendent).

Nomination forms, qualifications and a list of past winners are available on the Crystal Apple website. All nominations must be made using the online form. The deadline to make nominations is Tuesday, April 1, at 5 p.m.
