Nominate a Teacher or School with Heart

Citadel Heart of Learning Award 2016

EXTON, PA — Citadel announced today that the nomination period for the 2016 Citadel Heart of Learning Award is now open.  Nominations will be accepted October 1 - December 31, 2015.  

In a joint collaboration, Citadel and the Chester County Intermediate Unit created the Citadel Heart of Learning Awards in 2001.  The program recognizes and thanks Chester County’s teachers while raising awareness of the impact that their hard work and dedication have on students and their families, as well as on the entire community. Since the program’s inception, hundreds of teachers have been nominated; 210 have been named finalists, and 42 have been named winners at the annual awards banquet.

“The nominations we receive speak volumes about the significant impact teachers have in our community,” said Michael Schnably, Senior Vice-President at Citadel and Co-Chair for the Citadel Heart of Learning Award. “Teachers are incredibly important people in our lives, and we are proud to honor them through the Citadel Heart of Learning Award program.”

Fifteen finalists comprised of one public school teacher from each of the 13 public school districts in Chester County, one teacher from the Chester County Intermediate Unit and one teacher from a Chester County non-public school, which also includes charter and home schools, will be chosen from the nominations and will be recognized at the Citadel Heart of Learning Awards banquet held in May.  Each finalist will receive $500 to use in their classrooms.  From these 15 finalists, three winners (one high school, one middle school and one elementary school teacher) will be awarded the Citadel Heart of Learning Award, and an additional $1,500 to be used in their classrooms.
