BrighT.ED. Award Nomination Form
Ted Wachs joyfully taught world history and psychology and coached student athletes for 46 years. He was a pioneer in holistic education who was influenced by time spent studying confluent education (integration of mind, body and spirit). His positive, strengths-based approach influenced countless lives and the SoulSpark Learning approach. SoulSpark Learning celebrates at least one educator each year with a $400 award in his memory.

The criteria for award selection is evidence of holistic and strengths-based educational practices. The receiving educator can use the funds to explore a question or develop an idea they are working on in the classroom that relates to the SoulSpark Learning mission. In addition to funding, the award includes support from the SoulSpark Learning Team. In the inaugural year, the nonprofit will consider educator applicants working in Colorado (where SoulSpark Learning is registered). Priority consideration will be given to innovations with potential to impact underserved gifted youth (students eligible for free/reduced lunch, bilingual, Latino and African American students).
