NOMINATE YOUR EDUCATOR.
The Blue Heron Educator Award is about honoring educators who embody the characteristics of agility, integrity, compassion, and perseverance, and have gone above and beyond to inspire those same traits in their students—both in and out of the classroom. We're looking to hear your stories about educators who have made an impact in your lives.
Our Outward Bound School operates two campuses in Baltimore and Washington DC and will recognize two educators - one from each major metro area. The Blue Heron Educator Award is open to middle or high school educators, administrators, youth non-profit leaders, or anyone working directly with youth in your community.
Each winner will receive an exclusive wooden tabletop award and a one-day teambuilding experience for themselves and members of their team!
Nominations are closed for the 2022 Award.
Nominations are closed for this year but if you want to submit your favorite educator we will add them to our 2022-2023 award selection process.
