Salute to Excellence in Education Gala

Awards Gala

Public education plays a vital role in the United States with millions of public school teachers shouldering the profound responsibility of preparing 75.2 million children to achieve personal and academic success; to contribute economically; and to be active participants in our democracy.

The need to recognize, support, and celebrate these educators has never been more urgent.

 This is why at the annual Salute to Excellence in Education, The NEA Foundation shines a spotlight on extraordinary public school educators and partners who inspire students, serve families, and strengthen school communities from coast to coast.

This special gala event celebrates the power of educators while also raising critical funds that enable The NEA Foundation to continue our work. It’s an unforgettable occasion that offers you the opportunity to help fuel educators’ and students’ learning; create leaders for the global age; close opportunity gaps; and support change-makers while connecting with educators and education leaders from across the country.
