Golden Apple Awards:

 Golden Apple Awards

The Golden Apple is awarded by nomination from peers and distinguishes one outstanding educator in each of the twenty Eau Claire Area School District schools, as well as one honoree awarded for districtwide support roles. The Eau Claire Public Schools Foundation partners with generous area businesses to honor and recognize exceptional service in the schools.

Business Sponsored Grants:
• Each honoree is awarded with $500 in unrestricted grant funding to use in their classrooms or buildings in any way they choose. The only requirement is that the funds must be used to impact students.
• Each school is also awarded a $500 grant to their Eau Claire Public Schools Foundation Fund For Today, which the principal can use for the school’s greatest needs.
