Shine the spotlight on some of your district’s most important but often overlooked staff by nominating them for the New Jersey School Boards Association’s “Unsung Superheroes in Education” awards.

This program celebrates the invaluable contributions of school district staff in the following categories:

  • Librarian/media specialist.
  • Coach/club adviser.
  • School nurse.
  • Bus driver/aide.
  • Custodian/maintenance/building and grounds.
  • Cafeteria/food services.
  • Crossing guard.
  • Secretary/administrative assistant.
  • Paraprofessional/aide.
  • Human resource professional
  • Technology professional.
  • School security personnel.

These are individuals who work tirelessly behind the scenes, often without recognition, to ensure that our schools run smoothly and provide a safe and nurturing environment for our students. We invite you to nominate the superheroes in your district and help us shine a light on the amazing work they do every day.

To nominate your education superhero, please complete this form carefully, in its entirety, by May 1, 2024.

All submissions are held in strict confidence and will be reviewed on a rolling basis. Failure to file a complete, accurate, and authentic form will result in denial of the submission. All submissions will be vetted with the school district of the nominee to confirm the nominee is in good standing.

Award winners will be recognized at Workshop 2024, which will be held Oct. 21 to Oct. 24 at the Atlantic City Convention Center. Additional details will be available soon.
