NHSTE Awards

The NHSTE Pat Keyes and Susan Janosz Awards 

Do you have a teacher or teacher leader in your school or district who should be acknowledged for their contributions to school, students, faculty, and school culture? Do you know a local “technology hero” who went above and beyond to help learners and other teachers survive the difficult times of the past year? This is the perfect opportunity to let that person know their efforts are appreciated and recognize their contributions.

We are looking forward to celebrating the exciting efforts of NH educators once again. Nominate yourself or a friend for one of these two Prestigious NHSTE awards.

Nominations are due no later than Friday September 22, 2023
