The BLUE (Business Leaders Unite for Education) Award will be awarded to a community partner that goes above and beyond to service teachers throughout the State of Oklahoma in a way that is meaningful and impactful. These partners will promote civic engagement and civic literacy through advocacy efforts that directly influence Oklahoma Educators.
All nominees and the winner of the BLUE Award will be recognized at our 2018 Academic Excellence Luncheon. The theme for this year’s event is Operation Civic Engagement. The event will explore and acknowledge the importance of developing engaged citizens through Oklahoma classrooms. Through this event we will be recognizing teachers, students and key individuals from various organizations, including the 2018 Teacher of the Year and the 2018 BLUE Award Winner. Those in attendance will hear a special message from Kris Steel, former Oklahoma House Speaker and current Executive Director of TEEM. Registration for the event can be completed online.
