Nominations Sought: Cann Awards to Honor Outstanding Educators

Promethean has created The Cann Awards. Established in honor of Tony Cann, Promethean’s founder, The Cann Awards seek to honor the best in teaching from around the world.

Beginning Sept. 10, 2014, residents of Australia, Austria, Canada, China, France, Germany, Mexico, the United Kingdom and the United States are invited to nominate a teacher who played an integral role in their lives. Entrants may nominate a former teacher by sharing their story through a written essay or a short video/audio tribute. Five teachers will be selected as winners.

The nomination period for the 2014-2015 cycle of The Cann Awards opens Sept. 10 and runs through Nov. 15, 2014.
