CPLC’s Latino Teacher Award Nominations Now Open
Chicanos Por La Causa, Inc. (CPLC) will celebrate outstanding Latino educators at their 17th Annual Esperanza Latino Teacher Awards presented by Cox Communications and SRP. Nominations will be accepted through August 28 and four winners will be selected.
The four winning teachers will be honored at a special awards dinner in October and receive a $5,000 cash award and a stipend of $2,500 to their respective schools.
The Esperanza Latino Teacher Awards were established 17 years ago by CPLC and their corporate and community partners. It was created to distinguish those educators who ignite in our students a spirit of learning that spills over and impacts so many within the community.
The nomination must be submitted by a fellow teacher, principal or superintendent; the nominee must spend a majority of the school day in the classroom and teach at a state-approved or accredited school in Arizona; and must include a letter of support from the school principal.
Forms can be downloaded at www.CPLC.org and submitted to Events@CPLC.org.
