Regional Teacher of the Year and Regional Classified Employee of the Year award winners advance to the Office of the Superintendent of Public Instruction (OSPI) state recognition program where one individual from each category is selected to advance to the national competition. 


Want to get involved?! After the nomination period is closed, we will convene two judging panels to help select our south central Washington winners.
