Applications Invited for Terri Lynne Lokoff National Child Care Teacher Awards
The Terri Lynne Lokoff Child Care Foundation created the Terri Lynne Lokoff National Child Care Teacher Awards to acknowledge the critical role child care teachers play in providing quality early care and education.
Child care teachers from all fifty states and the District of Columbia are invited to apply. Fifty teachers will be selected for their commitment and dedication to the children they serve. Of the top ten recipients, one will be selected to receive the Helene Marks Award. As part of the application process, each applicant is asked to design an enhancement project for the children in his or her classroom illustrating the educational, social, and emotional benefits of the project.
The fifty award recipients will each receive $1,000 — $500 as a stipend acknowledging their special dedication and $500 to fund the classroom enhancement project they designed. The recipient of the Helene Marks Award will receive an additional $1,000. The winners also will be honored at an awards ceremony in Pennsylvania, with hotel stay and transportation provided.
