Exceptions include the Superintendent, Director of Communications, and previous award winners.

Nominations may be submitted by any District 181 stakeholder, including parents, students, staff, residents, and local employees and volunteers. An employee cannot nominate himself/herself. Nominations must be made via the official online form at www.d181.org.
