Educator Excellence Award Program

Educator Excellence Award INVESTMENT Fund

Why: The establishment of our Educator Excellence Award Thrivent Investment Fund is to honor and recognize our teachers who exemplify our mission and pursue excellence in the art of teaching. This program  is enhancing our effort to retain, grow, and attract inspiring Christian educators.

How awards are funded: Our plan is to further grow the established Investment Fund to our goal of $500,000 which will allow for a perpetual $20,000 a year to fund the award distribution on an annual basis.

Already $235,000 has been raised via our spring 2023 Walk-a-Thon & Online Auction fundraisers and Annual Fund donations. This principal invested value is generating earnings toward our goal to perpetually fund the award distribution on an annual basis.

Purpose: To honor and recognize through monetary awards our educators who exemplify our mission and pursue excellence.

When: Because of generous donors, we began the award program in the spring of 2023 while we strive to  build the earmarked fund that will perpetually pay out! Each school year, these awards will be selected in May and awarded out to the educators during our last day of school assembly.

Nomination/Qualification Process: A committee of teachers and administrators has been formed to develop the nomination process and qualifications for the award.

Selection: A selection committee will be put together to determine the award recipients. This can include administrators, school board members, and Northshore staff.

Award Amounts: The goal is to award $20,000 per year.

Missional Excellence Awards (10 given): Each recipient will receive $1500.

‘All In’ Award (2 given):

  • Each award recipient will receive $2,500
  • $2,000 will go directly to the employee in compensation. $500 will go toward further innovation and excellence in their classroom

Thank you for your investment in our teachers now and for the future. We are excited to honor and award educator excellence at NCA.
