CEA Awards Recognize Education, Communications Excellence

2018 CEA Newsletter and Website Award winners were honored at the Representative Assembly in May.

Each year, CEA recognizes local associations, individual members, and community stakeholders who make the teaching profession shine. Awards and grants are given for best local association website and newsletter, outstanding teaching professionals and advocates, new public relations projects, best media coverage, and more.

The annual competitions are open to all local associations across the state, and the deadline for entries is 5pm on Friday, February 22, 2019. Award winners will be recognized at the CEA Representative Assembly in May.

Nominating yourself, your local association, or a colleague is easy. Learn more about the following awards:
