The TBAISD, in partnership with the Traverse City Chamber of Commerce and TBA Credit Union, seeks nominations from community members and school districts in the five-county region for outstanding educators.

The annual awards are presented to teachers, administrators and school support staff who make exceptional contribution toward student education in the Traverse Bay region.
