  • Friend of Education

Nomination forms for the awards are made available in February.

Nominations must be made by BEA members.

The BEA Teacher of the Year is a teacher who:

  • has membership in the BEA
  • demonstrates excellence in education performance
  • actively advocates for children
  • is committed to ongoing professional development
  • performs community service

The BEA Friend of Education is a person who:

  • shows support for education in Billings Public Schools

The awardees will be selected from the nominations by the BEA Awards Committee. The Teacher of the Year receives $500. Both awardees will be honored at the Educator Appreciation Awards Banquet in April. Tickets will be sold by BEA Building Reps at the schools or at the BEA office.
