One of the priorities of the GECDSB Strategic Plan is to engage communities in partnerships that respond to the needs of our learners and enhance student achievement. The Champions for Education Award supports this priority.

Generous individuals and organizations in our communities devote thousands of hours and donate financial and in-kind contributions that make a real difference to our students.

The Champions for Education Award recognizes outstanding achievement and exceptional records of commitment by individuals and organizations in support of our students and our school communities.
