The Montgomery County Board of Education is seeking nominations from the public for its Eleventh Annual Awards for Distinguished Service to Public Education. The awards are sponsored by the Board to recognize and show appreciation to individuals, groups, and organizations that have made exemplary contributions to public education in Montgomery County.

“We encourage members of the community to submit a nomination form to acknowledge those who often work outside of the limelight and contribute their time and talent to supporting our children,” said Nancy Navarro, Board of Education president.

Nominations will be accepted in the following categories:

community individual
community group

Up to three awards will be given in each of the categories.
