Warren County, Ohio – The Area Progress Council’s Project Excellence program is seeking teacher nominations as it enters its thirty-first year of honoring public educators in Warren County, Ohio. 660 educators have been selected since the project began in 1988, several have been selected twice or three times. Teachers are selected from each of the county’s school districts.

If you know of a public educator who “makes a difference”, you are encouraged to submit a nomination. A teacher can not be selected if he/she has not been nominated. Nomination forms may be obtained through the month of February from the superintendent’s office of each district, any public school building, and any public library located in Warren County; all Warren County branches of 1st National Bank, LCNB National Bank, Peoples Bank, US Bank and WesBanco; downloaded or completed on-line from the APC website . Nominations should be completed and sent to Project Excellence, P O Box 802, Lebanon, Ohio 45036 by February 28 via email or US mail.

The educators will be honored May 6 at a recognition banquet held at the Warren County Career Center.

Committees to select the excellent teachers for each district are comprised of an Area Progress Council representative, the district superintendent and a representative from the community. The committees utilize criteria developed by Miami University. Nominations are reviewed and evaluated by the individual district selection committees for key terms and/or phrases to determine the 2020 award recipients.
