Nominations are still open to honor the outstanding contributions of Education Support Professionals in Oregon. You can submit an application to recognize a special Education Support Professional (ESP) through Wednesday.

To be nominated, ESPs must work in an Oregon K-12 public school or school district and meet the definition of an ESP in Oregon.

Nominees should embody the core values of Accountability, Equity, Excellence and Integrity.

Education Support Professionals work together with teachers and administrators in Oregon public schools to perform a variety of jobs promoting quality education, fostering positive learning environments, offering nutritious meals, providing reliable transportation, maintaining safe and clean schools for all students and more.

The 2024 ESP of the Year will be surprised with a special announcement this spring.

Thanks to the Oregon Department of Education's partnership with the Oregon Lottery, the Oregon ESP of the Year will receive an award of $5,000 as well as a plaque and banner to commemorate this significant achievement.

Additional details can be found on the "Oregon Education Support Professional of the Year" website.
