United Way of Butler County is accepting nominations for Red Apple Awards, which honor educators who exemplify outstanding dedication to students and a commitment to the wider community.
An award will be presented to one pre-K educator, and a K-12 educator teaching in each of the seven Butler County School Districts along with one instructor or professor from Butler County Vo-Tech, Butler County Community College and Slippery Rock University.
Anyone can make a nomination. Nomination forms may be mailed to United Way of Butler County, 184 Pittsburgh Road, Butler, PA 16001 or faxed to 724-287-1470. Nomination forms are available at any of the schools or at www.butlerunitedway.org. They can faxed to 724-287-1470. The deadline for nominations is April 26.
Awardees will be announced in May and honored at the United Way of Butler County annual breakfast meeting.
In addition to a plaque, a $500 cash award will be given to each winner for use at school. These cash awards are sponsored by Butler County businesses and organizations.
Last year, $5,500 in cash grants benefitted 2,000 students and more than 200 faculty members with music, fitness, science, and technology equipment. It also covered fees for student certifications, uniforms and equipment, according to the United Way.
You are solely responsible for your comments and by using TribLive.com you agree to our Terms of Service.
We moderate comments. Our goal is to provide substantive commentary for a general readership. By screening submissions, we provide a space where readers can share intelligent and informed commentary that enhances the quality of our news and information.
While most comments will be posted if they are on-topic and not abusive, moderating decisions are subjective. We will make them as carefully and consistently as we can. Because of the volume of reader comments, we cannot review individual moderation decisions with readers.
We value thoughtful comments representing a range of views that make their point quickly and politely. We make an effort to protect discussions from repeated comments either by the same reader or different readers.
We follow the same standards for taste as the daily newspaper. A few things we won't tolerate: personal attacks, obscenity, vulgarity, profanity (including expletives and letters followed by dashes), commercial promotion, impersonations, incoherence, proselytizing and SHOUTING. Don't include URLs to Web sites.
We do not edit comments. They are either approved or deleted. We reserve the right to edit a comment that is quoted or excerpted in an article. In this case, we may fix spelling and punctuation.
We welcome strong opinions and criticism of our work, but we don't want comments to become bogged down with discussions of our policies and we will moderate accordingly.
We appreciate it when readers and people quoted in articles or blog posts point out errors of fact or emphasis and will investigate all assertions. But these suggestions should be sent via e-mail. To avoid distracting other readers, we won't publish comments that suggest a correction. Instead, corrections will be made in a blog post or in an article.
