Often hailed as the “Oscars of Teaching,” the Milken Educator Awards have changed the way America views the profession. Since 1987, more than 2,600 outstanding K-12 educators have been surprised with individual, unrestricted financial awards of $25,000 during all-school assemblies filled with students, colleagues, officials and media. These very public events spotlight the vital role of educators and inspire young people to consider the adventure of teaching. Recipients become part of the Milken Educator Network, working to shape the future of education. Visit the Milken Educator Awards website to learn more.
