We’re seeking your help in encouraging KU seniors to nominate their favorite high school teachers for the Wolfe Teaching Excellence Award. We have invited all KU seniors to nominate outstanding high school educators who have encouraged and positively influenced them to dream, aspire, and persevere. Evidence of such influence may include a variety of things like a caring attitude, help with academic decisions, remarkable classroom performance, and giving time and creative effort to the art and science of guiding students in their academic career paths.

Please share the attached nomination form with your senior-level students. Nominations may come from seniors in any department on campus.

Winning teachers receive a $3,000 award. In addition, the high school where the teacher is employed receives a $1,000 award.

If you have any questions, please contact Jeannette Johnson in the Office of the Provost, wolfeawards@ku.edu or 864-4906

Completed nomination forms may be sent to wolfeawards@ku.edu, and must be received by 5 p.m. on Friday, February 11.
