We are currently accepting nominations of Wisconsin teachers and principals for 2021 Herb Kohl teacher fellowships and principal leadership awards. Nominees will be notified in August, 2020. If your nominee chooses to apply, he or she will be considered for a $6,000 personal grant and a $6,000 matching grant for his or her school. The Herb Kohl Foundation annually selects 100 teachers and 16 principals to receive awards.
2020 Award Recognition Luncheons Canceled
To help safeguard the health and well-being of everyone invited to attend Herb Kohl Educational Foundation award recipient recognition luncheons, we have decided to cancel all luncheons. Events scheduled for April 26 in Eau Claire, May 3 in De Pere, May 9 in Milwaukee, and May 16 in Baraboo are canceled.
The decision to cancel these events was a difficult one. Herb Kohl was looking forward to meeting the many outstanding Wisconsin students, teachers and principals who are receiving awards this year and celebrating their accomplishments with friends and family members. However in this challenging time, safety must be our priority. Because of the potential long term need for social distancing and restrictions on large group gatherings, we are not rescheduling the luncheons.
We hope that you and your loved ones stay healthy and safe as we navigate the challenges we all face during this time.
