The Hamilton County Education Foundation (HCEF) was established by the Hamilton County Educational Service Center‘s Governing Board to enhance the lives of educators in our community. The Foundation created their annual "Celebrate Excellence" Award to recognize and honor excellent educators throughout the public school districts of Hamilton County through the provision of scholarships. Past honorees have included special education administrators, music directors, principals, intervention specialists and guidance counselors in addition to classroom teachers.
The Madeira City School District participates in the "Celebrate Excellence Educator of the Year" recognition program and will select an Educator of the Year to represent Madeira at the HCEF Award Ceremony in May. We invite all students, staff, parents and community members to nominate a Madeira educator for this award by completing and submitting this form: Celebrating Excellence.

An ad hoc building committee will review their respective nominations and select one nominee to be considered as the district representative. An ad hoc district committee will then review the nominees from each building and select the educator who will represent Madeira. The building nominees will be recognized by the Madeira Board of Education.
