In March, the Rodel Foundation will launch a campaign to recognize the courage and commitment of the great Delawareans who make great Delaware schools. As a state, Delaware has received a great deal of well-deserved recognition and kudos for initiatives like Vision 2015, Race to the Top, and the Early Learning Challenge. Yet, all too often, the individuals who actually turn these great ideas into reality – in the classroom and in the community – get little recognition for their time, creativity, and dedication. We would like to help tell their stories through this recognition campaign, through which members of the public can nominate champions in education (more details to come in March).

We just have one problem – we don’t have a great name to call A GREAT campaign!

We are hoping for your help in giving our recognition campaign a great title. We are looking for a new (unused elsewhere) name that imparts qualities of a champion, forward-thinker, and leader in the education community (something like “Champion in Education”). The honor might go to a teacher, parent, community member, principal, legislator, school board member, or others, so the name needs to fit a broad group of potential honorees, yet be simple. Submit your idea here.

Submissions will be accepted through February 29 and a name will be chosen in early March. The winner will receive a $100 VISA® or Mastercard® gift card. More details to come about the recognition campaign and nomination process in the coming months. Thank you for your help!
