VSTE sponsors a variety of awards to recognize outstanding educators.

Outstanding Leader and Teacher Award
VSTE will recognize and honor one leader and one teacher in Virginia who have demonstrated outstanding achievement and leadership in implementing technology to improve education. Award recipients will be selected from a pool of nominations submitted by VSTE members from around Virginia.

Here is your chance to recognize an exemplary colleague. Additional information, nomination documents, and evaluation rubrics can be found here.

Innovative Educator of the Year
Do you know someone in your backyard that’s an innovative educator? Someone who deserves recognition for thinking creatively with regards to using technology in instruction? VSTE is now accepting nominations for the Innovative Educator of the Year. Our aim is to highlight and recognize innovative educational practices—especially those that champion the smart integration of technology. Entries will be reviewed by the Innovations Committee, made up of board members of the Society.

Nominees should be members of VSTE, and can be from public and private schools, can be advocates for education, and faculty and staff of higher education institutions. Learn more here: Complete your nomination here:
