    Nominations are now being accepted for the 14th annual Nassau BOCES Education Partner Awards. The award recognizes individuals and organizations that have gone above and beyond to make a measurable impact on public education in Nassau County. We're inviting everyone who has ever been influenced by public education to make a nomination.

    Education Partners come from all walks of life and have included mentors, coaches, business leaders, volunteers, classroom teachers, college and district administrators, professors, legislators, state officials and local television reporters. The award is open to anyone who has made a significant contribution to education in Nassau County, from pre-school to adult education. Nominations can be made in any of the following six award categories:

    • Education Partner (open to all)
    • Nassau BOCES employees
    • Organizations
    • School Board Members
    • Students
    • Teachers

    Enter nominations by Friday, November 8, to be considered for the 2020 award. 


    Note:  We'll be asking for your nominee's information, a brief essay telling us why you are nominating this person or organization and one strong example of how the person or organization has gone above and beyond to made a difference for public education. When nominating an organization, please include contact information for the head of that organization.

    Winners will be honored March 31, 2020, at the Nassau BOCES Education Partner Awards Gala sponsored by the Nassau BOCES Educational Foundation. This event helps to support grants for specialized educational activities that go beyond annual operating budgets.
