Bainbridge Island Kiwanis Club accepting nominations for Educator of the Year

The Bainbridge Island Kiwanis Club is soliciting nominations for its annual “Educator of the Year” program.

Nomination forms must be received not later than May 17.

The selection committee will be looking for educators who have made extraordinary efforts towards improving the education of Bainbridge Island children. Education will be viewed in the broadest sense, and a project that teaches the values of community service can be just as educational as one that improves math skills.

Candidates for the award must be associated with an accredited educational organization, and nominations will be accepted from anyone in the community, including students, parents, fellow educators and school administrators. Nomination forms can be obtained from school administrators and parent organizations, or by emailing the award project officer at

The award will include a $500 check to the honoree, and an additional $500 to their school. Past recipients were Mary Alice O’Neill, Ian Eisenhood, Adam Rabinowitz and Sean Eaton.

Kiwanis International is a global organization dedicated to changing the world one child and one community at a time. Because teachers play a key role in carrying out this mission, an individual is honored annually.
