NBTA Centennial Award
The NBTA Centennial Award is presented each year to an individual in recognition of having made a significant contribution to education in New Brunswick. It has traditionally honoured a long and prestigious career of involvement in the profession.
The award has its own application form and must be sent, clearly marked, to the NBTA Selection Committee as described on the form. The quality of the submission can be enhanced greatly by ensuring a substantial amount of documentation from a variety of sources is provided. Further, the sponsors of the nomination should synthesize the contents of various supporting statements in a single overview of the recipient's activities and contributions which would merit consideration.
The deadline for nominations for the award is April 1st.
Branches wishing to nominate persons should start early gathering supportive documentation to ensure a complete, well-rounded and detailed submission. Every additional detail that enhances the committees' ability to choose one from many excellent and deserving nominees is important.

Elementary Council, NBTA
Annual Teacher Awards
In 2011 the New Brunswick Teachers' Association, Elementary Council decided to create Annual Teacher Awards to honour the vital role teachers play in developing the potential of students. These awards support peer recognition of those teachers and leaders whose inspirational approach to teaching stimulates student learning.
These special teachers and leaders are found throughout our education system and it is of benefit to the teaching profession that we identify and honour fine examples of inspirational teaching and leadership. These educators will not only continue to shine as positive role models for beginning teachers, but also help build confidence in the profession as a whole.
