This form is an initial screening to ensure that a nomination meets the basic criteria for TOY acceptance. Oregon SHAPE will then work with the nominee to ensure that other additional criteria is met and documented. It is Oregon SHAPE's intent to prepare all nominees to participate in a nomination track that will make a nominee eligible for District and National Recognition within SHAPE America, our associate organization.
TOY applicants, if awarded the Oregon Teacher of the Year, will be entered in the pool for Western District TOY nominations. If a TOY is awarded the Western District Teacher of the Year, the nominee will then be entered into the National Teacher of the Year pool.
We have many excellent professionals in the state of Oregon and would like to recognize those professionals for their contribution to our area of academia. Those who obtain a State Award will be recognized at the State Conference on October 12th & 13th before the State Assembly.
Please Note: Current State, Regional or National Board of Directors members, Executive Committee members and former national Teachers of the Year are not eligible to apply for these awards.
