Awards & Recognition Programs
The Manitoba School Boards Association sponsors several awards that are presented each year in conjunction with its annual convention held in March.
- Student Citizenship Awards (six individual and one group) recognize outstanding young people throughout Manitoba who are active participants in their communities and schools. There are no age or grade restrictions on this award; all students in regular attendance in the K-12 program at a Manitoba public school are eligible.
- The Premier Award for School Board Innovation recognizes educational innovations and improvements advanced or directed by boards of education to support and/or enhance student achievement.
- The Presidents' Council Award celebrates exemplary service and outstanding achievement, innovative thinking and personal initiative, and lasting and pervasive impact in the field of public education.
- Long Service Trustee Recognition honours trustees with 12, 16 or 20 years of school board service.
Information on nomination procedures and deadlines is distributed to school boards each fall.
