Dwyer Awards Overview:

The William T. Dwyer Awards for Excellence in Education is an annual program of the Economic Council of Palm Beach County Foundation, recognizing outstanding educators from public and private schools in Palm Beach County. The program seeks to increase awareness of the exemplary teaching in our community, while supporting educators and schools with financial awards and encouraging residents to promote high standards of excellence in education.

Awards are given in seven categories: Grow Up Great:  Early Learning Education, Elementary Education, Middle School Education, Senior High Education, Student Advancement & Career Education, Special Programs, and STEM Education.

Applicants are judged on their classroom accomplishments, personal education philosophy, leadership and outside of the classroom school-related or community-based activities.  Our judges – nearly 100 business leaders from Palm Beach County evaluate each application in a multi-round judging process and are tasked with the difficult mission to narrow down the applications to only 28 finalists, to ultimately seven winners – one in each category.
