Nominate a deserving teacher

Join us in celebrating Ontario’s best teachers!

The OTIP Teaching Awards, sponsored by the Ontario Teachers’ Insurance Plan (OTIP) and the Ontario Teachers’ Federation (OTF), recognize and celebrate teachers who make a difference… teachers who light a spark in students, inspire their colleagues and give parents confidence.

Winners are hosted at a fall awards ceremony in Toronto where they are presented with a personal award of $1,000 and a Certificate of Recognition. Their schools also receive a $1,000 prize and a Certificate of Recognition.

Awards are presented in three categories:
• elementary school teacher
• secondary school teacher
• beginning teacher in the first five years of teaching.

A teacher may be nominated by anyone – professional colleague, student, parent, or the general public.

The deadline to submit a nomination is March 31, 2020.
