The Dwyer Awards, an annual program developed in 1984 and supported by the Economic Council of Palm Beach County , honors outstanding educators from public and private schools in Palm Beach County, increases awareness of the exemplary teaching in our community, supports educators with financial awards and encourages all residents to promote high standards for excellence in education. The Economic Council of Palm Beach County is comprised of business leaders who are committed to educational excellence as a key tenet for creating an environment for business to prosper.

The seven categories for the 2021 Dwyer Awards include: Grow Up Great: Early Education, Elementary Education, Middle School Education, Senior High School Education, STEM Education, Student Advancement & Career Education, and Special Programs.

More than 425 applications were received in January 2021, and were evaluated multiple times over a two-month process by more than 100 business leaders in Palm Beach County. The judges were then tasked with the difficult process of narrowing the applications down to the top 28 – four finalists per category who will be interviewed by a panel of business leaders where an ultimate winner has been decided for each category.

Award recipients will be announced and honored along with all finalists, nominees and past recipients at the Dwyer Awards ceremony, presented by The Hanley Foundation, on Tuesday, May 25th at 5:30 pm via virtual ceremony.
