“Fostering Our Future” Awards


Nominations Now Closed

JOIN US on april 17th FOR A Special recognition celebration for all nominees!

Yorkville Educational Foundation’s 2nd annual “Fostering our Future” awards recognize educators, staff, volunteers and community members who go above and beyond in District 115. When you submit a nomination, you recognize that person for their efforts in support of the district and the students it serves.  Join us for food, drinks and a celebration as we recognize excellence district-wide.

Last year we celebrated 24 nominees who went above and beyond for District 115. Attendees listened to powerful stories of how their work inside and outside their classroom transforms lives and inspires others – not over just one year, but over the course of many years.  Parents, students, principals and colleagues wrote incredible testimonies that highlighted the amazing work that is happening inside the walls of our schools and inside our District every single day. All of these achievements contribute to the “We” in Yorkville.

About the Selection Process

The nominations will be reviewed and screened by a committee comprised of representatives from Yorkville Schools, auxiliary groups, and community members. The review process will remove all names from the applications to strive for the highest levels of impartiality.  The committee will determine the winners based upon nomination criteria. Nominees will be notified via a surprise announcement. They will also be invited to be Guests of Honor at the April "Fostering our Future" Awards where they will be recognized for their accomplishments.
