Nominate Your Favorite Early Childhood Champion


WILL-TV, in collaboration with PBS KIDS, presents our first annual Early Childhood Champions Awards! Early Childhood Champions are committed, talented champions who work with young children (infants to third graders) in a diversity of learning environments: some are certified Pre-K, Head Start and early elementary teachers, others are childcare providers in centers and programs, and still others are family, friends, and neighbors who offer care in their homes. Champions are passionate about their work, enthusiastic about their professional growth and active contributors (or wish to be) to a community of dynamic early educators. 

Do you know someone like that?  You do? Great! Then, please, nominate them for one of four WILL-TV Early Childhood Champions Awards by April 9.  Then, join us for our virtual Awards Ceremony on Tuesday, May 4 from 6pm until 7:30pm where we will announce the winners and celebrate the hard work of all of our talented championss.  Our keynote address will be delivered by Dr. Jamilah R. Jor'dan, Executive Director, Governor's Office of Early Childhood Development.
