Upcoming Events, Trainings and Recognition

2023 Horizon application available; deadline is Oct. 14

The Kansas Horizon Award program offers Kansas school districts an excellent opportunity to honor exemplary first-year teachers.

The program, sponsored by the Kansas State Department of Education, recognizes and rewards teachers who have served as outstanding representatives of excellent teaching in the elementary and secondary classrooms of the state during their first year of teaching.

Horizon Award winners receive special recognition during the KEEN State Education Conference, which takes place each February in Topeka.

Nominated teachers must have completed their first-year of teaching and be starting their second year. It’s easy to nominate a teacher from your district — simply click on the link - http://www.ksde.org/Agency/Fiscal-and-Administrative-Services/Communications-and-Recognition-Programs/Kansas-Horizon-Award-Program

Completed applications must be received no later than Oct. 14, 2022.

We hope you’ll take advantage of this opportunity to recognize and reward first-year teachers in your district.

For more information about the program, please contact Tamla Miller at (785) 296-4950, or e-mail her at tmiller@ksde.org.
