Nominate a deserving teacher

Want to recognize a teacher who does great work in his/her school?

Consider nominating him/her for an OTIP Teaching Award. Sponsored by the Ontario Teachers Insurance Plan (OTIP) and the Ontario Teachers' Federation (OTF), the OTIP Teaching Awards recognize and celebrate on an annual basis teachers who make a difference… teachers who light a spark in students, inspire their colleagues and give parents confidence.

The awards celebrate excellence in three categories: elementary school teacher; secondary school teacher; and beginning teacher in the first five years of teaching.

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.

A teacher may be nominated by anyone - professional colleagues, students, parents, or the general public.

Nominations open January 9, 2018 and close March 31, 2018.
