Dear Sir or Madam,
It is our strongest belief that educators are some of the hardest working professionals in our communities. They help to shape and guide today's youth into tomorrow's leaders. The Grand Lodge of Free and Accepted Masons of Washington, and their charitable wing, the Washington Masonic Charities, want to show our appreciation to the educators of our state by awarding a $500 stipend to one outstanding educator from Western Washington and one from Eastern Washington.
Do you have an educator in your building or district who is truly outstanding? If there is a teacher, counselor, administrator, or other educator who is truly one of the best you have seen in your career, please nominate them for the Washington Masonic Charities Outstanding Educator award.
In order to participate please complete the Outstanding Educator application that can found on our website at: https://www.wa-masoniccharities.org/documents/Outstandinged.pdf.
Please carefully review the mandatory due dates for submitting an application nominating an outstanding educator. The winner(s) of the $500 award will be announced by May 31, 2017.
