The annual WOSU Classroom Impact Award recognizes a passionate educator who displays a commitment to lifelong learning. Educators who embrace a mindset of lifelong learning continue to explore creative and innovative teaching methods and, in turn, achieve better student outcomes. Such an obvious love of learning is infectious and sets an example for students, transforming the way they navigate their world, developing pride in achievement and raising their self-esteem.


Who qualifies for this award?

This award is open to any licensed K-12 educator or administrator who has participated in a WOSU Classroom professional learning opportunity within the past year. Educators should be able to display a commitment to lifelong learning and show how they foster that same passion in their classrooms and communities.
