The Process is divided into three phases:
- The Nomination Phase
- The Application Phase
- The Selection Phase
1. The Nomination Phase – Nominations are accepted on the campus where the nominated teacher is employed between November 18, 2016 to February 3, 2017.
Schools or individuals are invited to nominate teachers; self-nominations are not allowed. Also, nominations cannot be made by immediate family. Additionally, the nomination packet must include three typed pages of supplementary materials. Incomplete nomination forms will not be accepted. Previous winners are not eligible for nomination.
2. The Application Process – Deadline 5:00 pm on Friday, February 3, 2017
Campuses will notify teachers who were nominated. All teachers who accept the nomination submit a fully complete Nomination/Application Packet to Beaumont Foundation office by 5:00 pm on Friday, February 3, 2017 in order to be considered. Do not submit a partially completed packet or any supplemental material separately. This may disqualify you.
3. The Selection Process – Beaumont Foundation will announce winners on March 17, 2017
Each participating school will select a 5-person nominating committee to receive campus nominations. Only students and teachers will serve on their nominating committee at each campus. Committee membership at Middle and High School campuses must have two teachers and three students. All elementary campuses must have student representation. The student(s) may be former student(s) from the elementary campus, but must be a current student(s) in the district. Each school’s nominating committee will select Campus Excellence in Education nominees per Beaumont Foundation campus allotment and submit required materials to the Foundation per the Campus Checklist by February 3, 2017. Selection of the Excellence in Education Award winners will be made by the Beaumont Foundation.
Winners will be announced on Friday, March 17, 2017.

Frequently Asked Questions:
Q: I applied last year and was not selected. May I reapply?
A: Yes. Please complete and return an application.
Some teachers apply many times before being selected
because there are so many great teachers. Nominees
are encouraged to retain a copy of their Application and
re-submit an updated Nomination/Application packet.
Q: Is there any flexibility in the application deadline?
A: Due to the selection process, we regret that we cannot
extend the application deadline. Past applicants tell us
that the biggest challenge is getting the Letters of
Support back in time. Please start with these first
and get them back before completing the application.
Q: When will I hear if I have been selected?
A: All applicants will be notified of Honoree selection
by Friday, March 17, 2017. Information will be sent
overnight to the mailing address you provide. The
names of the winners will also be posted on the
Home Page of the Beaumont Foundation website.
