Educator Impact Awards FAQ
Nominees can apply to be considered for up to three (3) categories. To be considered in more than one (1) category, you must check the appropriate category boxes on the nomination information page. Responses to each question in the questionnaire should be a minimum of 100 words and should not exceed 250 words.
If you are applying for more than one category,you may provide up to 250 per category. Under each question, please segment out each category section you are applying for, so your response matches that category.
Please see ‘How it Works’ and the scoring rubric in Appendix A of the Nomination Packet.
Videos should be 3-5 minutes in length.
You can certainly post your video on your personal YouTube channel if you’d like; however, we still need the ‘raw’ footage submitted to us as one of the three requested submission items.
