TALB Awards 2022

Each year, TALB is honored to recognize our members — teachers, nurses, librarians, facilitators, specialists, psychologists or counselors —  and community supporters for their outstanding performance and contributions to education.

Award recipients are presented at our annual TALB Unity Dinner held in June.

We believe our annual awards are even more significant because nominations are made directly by TALB members.
Any TALB member may submit a nomination for a TALB Award.

Deadline for all award nominations is 4:30 pm on May 20, 2022.
All nominations must be made online.
