Deadlines fast approaching to nominate outstanding colleagues
Every year delegates at the BCTF Annual General Meeting honour colleagues who have made significant contributions to our profession and our union.
The Bob Rosen Social Justice Award honours a teacher who has made an outstanding and sustained contribution in working for systemic change on issues of social justice, including antiracism, peace and global education, environmental justice, status of women, antipoverty, and LBGTQ issues.
The Steward Schon Award recognizes a teacher who has made an outstanding and sustained contribution to the health and safety of BCTF members.
Please note that the nomination deadline for both the Bob Rosen and the Stewart Schon awards is January 31, 2017.
The highest honour bestowed by the BCTF is the G.A. Fergusson Memorial Award, granted annually to a BCTF member (or former member) who has made an outstanding contribution to public education.
In addition, honorary life membership in the BCTF is granted to those who are recognized as having given long and outstanding service to the Federation and education at the provincial level.
The nomination deadline for the G.A. Fergusson Memorial Award and honorary life membership is February 10, 2017. Please refer to the procedures outlined here for both awards.
