Nominate an outstanding individual or group for the Spirit of San Juan awards

Spirit of San Juan logo Despite the challenges that this school year has brought, resiliency, creativity and kindness have shown through in many ways across the district. Do you know a student who has been a role model for others during distance learning? A group that has made a difference for our students this past year? An educator whose dedication shines through their work, no matter the setting? Nominate them for a Spirit of San Juan award and help recognize the outstanding contributions they have made in our district during this unprecedented year.

Each year, members of the San Juan Unified community nominate remarkable people who embody what it is to have the “Spirit of San Juan.” The Spirit of San Juan awards recognize individuals or groups who help others in their school community, demonstrate positive character and support an inclusive environment for others.

The nomination deadline is Feb. 19, 2021. Multiple nominations for the same individual or group will be accepted.

Winners will each get to be the star of their own short video feature recognizing their positive contributions. The videos will premiere at a virtual event in the spring.
