The Essor Recognition Awards
The Essor Recognition Awards are given out each year to recognize the excellence, efforts and enthusiasm of the educators and school authorities who help young people undertake innovative and imaginative projects at school. These initiatives foster student retention by encouraging student involvement and promoting student success. These Awards are therefore an opportunity to highlight the regional initiatives carried out in teaching institutions, in collaboration with the cultural resources of their community, in order to integrate the cultural dimension into the school.
Projects eligible for the Essor Recognition Awards promote culture, are associated with one or more Arts Education subjects, and are interdisciplinary. By submitting such projects, teachers may win a regional prize worth $2 000 for their school. Depending on the exceptional character of the project, educators may even be eligible to win one of nine provincial cash prizes, including the Essor Provincial Grand Prize consisting of $10 000.
