Dear Friends of the Denver Teachers' Awards,

The Denver Teachers' Awards organization wants to update you regarding the changes to the preparations we are making in our plans for granting the 2020 awards due to the coronavirus situation in Denver.  

This year's nominations have been received and are currently in the process of being reviewed and evaluated.  We hope to be able to share the names of this year's recipients of the Denver Teachers' Awards sometime during the  first part of April.  

Nominees, nominators, and their principals were invited to a recognition reception on March 26 at North High School.  The March 26 reception has been cancelled and will not be rescheduled.  Those who were invited to the reception will receive an update and more information in the near future.  

This year's presentation of awards at the Annual Excellence in Education Banquet has been scheduled for Thursday, May 7, at the DoubleTree by Hilton Denver.  We will provide information regarding the banquet when possible.

Thank you for your understanding during this difficult time and thank you for supporting outstanding teachers in Denver!

Visionary Denver businessman, Charles W. Lerch, started Denver Teachers Awards’ in 1957.  He was dedicated to strengthening our foundation of freedom and believed that the most efficient way to do this was by encouraging quality education in the Denver Public Schools.  The tradition has been continued by DTA board members who raise funds each year to support the organization and its work.   See “What You Can Do” to assist with this effort.
