“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 staff member from each school who are an inspiration to their school and their community. The Inspire Awards are the only district-wide celebration of excellence and hope that touches each of our 68 school communities, and we are thrilled to recognize these remarkable leaders and their accomplishments.
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, and the recipient is presented with a cash award to be used on a special school project. Our generous sponsors make this recognition possible.
Nominate a Student and Staff Member
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 and staff member from your school.
