Be a Part of Recognizing the Unsung Heroes of Education
This blog post was originally published on Town Square Delaware.
As a new school year gets underway, it is a great time to highlight the work being done to help children reach their potential. You can be a part of helping to recognize individuals who are making positive contributions throughout our state!
iEducate Delaware is an initiative of the Rodel Foundation of Delaware recognizing unsung heroes of public education statewide. The 15 finalists represent a diverse cross section of parents, educators, community leaders, and other inspiring individuals from up and down the state who are dedicating their time, commitment, and leadership to Delaware’s public schools.
iEducate Delaware is focused on public input, so your votes will weigh heavily in the selection of the honorees. You are able to vote once daily for up to three different finalists, and voting will close September 14th. The three iEducate Delaware honorees will be announced at the Vision 2015 conference on October 17th and be featured on Town Square Delaware. Honorees will have their stories widely promoted and will receive a $2,000 grant toward the education-related cause of their choice.
Visit www.iEducateDelaware.org to read the finalists’ stories, and vote today and every day until September 14 for your favorite. There are encouraging stories from each, and voting isn’t your only way to support your favorite finalists. After you vote, share their stories with friends and help promote the impact of the finalists’ innovative work– get involved, volunteer, and support local students, teachers, and schools. Also, each finalist’s website page has individual social media tools to Tweet, Pin, Facebook or email the finalists’ info to a friend. As the iEducate community grows, so does the impact of the finalists’ contributions.
Delaware is positioned to be a national leader in education, and we are fortunate to have individuals like the iEducate Delaware finalists and many others committed to giving our children the best education possible.
