The awards committee selects 11 winners from around the state, including six teachers, three administrators, a special education teacher and a volunteer. The Jon M. Huntsman family presents a crystal obelisk and a check for $10,000 to each of the winners.
Meet 2016's winners here. Nomination forms for this year's awards are available from public schools and local PTA groups or online at www.huntsmaneducationawards.com. Public educators statewide are eligible.
