NCAEE is pleased to announce a new award this year. The Presidents' Award is a complete scholarship for conference attendance with a value of approximately $500.00! The award will cover the cost of one NCAEE conference registration and two nights lodging at the Sheraton Greensboro where the event will be held.
This award is sponsored by the Past Presidents of NCAEE who would like to use this as an opportunity to offer ongoing support to elementary educators in NC. The Presidents' Award will be given in the spring of each year with a deadline for application of May 31st. The awardee will be selected by a committee consisting of at least three former NCAEE Presidents and the winner will be announced by mid-June.
2013 Presidents' Award Winner - Congratulations to Lisa Pagano, the winner of the 2013 Presidents' Award. At the time Lisa won this award, she had never attended the Elementary School Conference and was not a member of the Board of Directors. Shortly after she applied for the award, she also applied for the position of Secretary. Lisa was voted in as a new member of our Board of Directors at the conference on October 21st. We know she'll make a terrific Secretary!

Are you a newbie, or do you know someone who is a newbie to the teaching profession? In education lingo, a newbie is defined as an ILT (Initially Licensed Teacher) 1, 2, or 3. In an effort to support teachers who are new to the teaching profession, NCAEE has established a Newbie Support Fund. We know that it’s expensive to set up a classroom and get started in the teaching profession, and we want to help! At each annual conference, the association will award a total of $1,000 to TEN different teachers, with each winner receiving $100 to spend on materials for his or her classroom. Newbie Award recipients will be selected randomly from conference participants who enter their names into the drawing. Just one more great reason why YOU need to plan to attend this year's conference!
