Inspire Awards

“I cannot do everything, but I can do something.”

–Edward Everett Hale


Every year the Foundation for Lincoln Public Schools is privileged to honor one student and one educator from each school who are an inspiration to their school and their community. These remarkable leaders gather for an evening of celebration and recognition for their accomplishment. The Inspire School of the Year Awards are the only district-wide celebration of excellence and hope that touches each of our 64 school communities.

We also honor one school for their distinction in academic excellence and goal achievement. The Inspire School of the Year Award is the highest award a school can receive from the district. The school is also presented with a $5,000 award to be used on a special school project. Our generous sponsors Allstate, Ameritas and the Richard P. Kimmel & Laurine Kimmel Charitable Foundation make this recognition possible.

Nominate a Student, Staff Member or School

It only takes one. One principal, recognizing one student for their quiet leadership, their creative problem-solving, their inclusive heart. That act of recognition can change the future of a child. That moment can change the future for us all.

Take a moment to lift up an individual by nominating a student, staff member or school.
