SBOE Now Accepting Nominations For The 2021 Heroes For Children Award

Heroes For Children Nominations News Release

AUSTIN, Texas – May 13, 2021 – Each school day, thousands of Texans volunteer their time in the state’s more than 8,800 public schools.

Please take the opportunity to recognize the contributions of your local volunteers by nominating them for the State Board of Education’s (SBOE) Heroes for Children Award. The award recognizes the many outstanding volunteers whose effort and excellence in advocacy for education has significantly benefitted Texas’s public school students.

A Texas resident who gives time, service, or support to public schools and students may be nominated for the award. However, elected officials and educational employees are ineligible for consideration of this award recognition.

Nominations are being accepted now through July 1, 2021 at 5 p.m. (CDT).

Since its creation in 1994, the board has recognized over 450 outstanding school volunteers with this award. Each year, the 15 SBOE members select one award recipient from each of their districts. Last year’s 15 recipients collectively donated a total of 190 years of volunteer service to Texas public schools.

Examples of volunteer services provided by past “Heroes for Children” recipients include mentoring children, providing weekend meals and Wi-Fi access during the pandemic, providing ready-made meals for families in need, organizing fundraisers, and much more to help create happy, thriving school cultures.

This year’s recipients will be recognized at the board’s September general meeting in Austin, Texas. Each recipient will receive a plaque and a resolution. Their names will also be engraved on a perpetual plaque outside the SBOE board room.

The nomination form and additional information can be found here: https://tea.texas.gov/Heroes_for_Children.aspx.
