Awards for Innovative K-12 Educators
Voya Unsung Heroes Awards Program
The Voya Unsung Heroes Awards Program provides educators nationwide with awards to help fund their innovative class projects. Full-time educators, teachers, principals, paraprofessionals, or classified staff with effective projects that improve student learning are eligible to apply. Applicants must work at an accredited K-12 public or private school located in the United States. The 100 finalists each receive an award of $2,000. At least one award will be granted in each of the 50 United States, provided one or more qualified applications are received from each state. Of the 100 finalists, three will be selected for additional financial awards of $5,000, $10,000, and $25,000. All awards must be used to further the projects within the school or school system. Applications must be submitted online by April 30, 2015. Visit the Unsung Heroes Awards Program website to access the application and learn more about the program.
