Golden Heart Awards 2024-2025

  • Greetings,

    It is time to nominate for the 2024-2025 Golden Heart Awards!

    This prestigious award is for any individual who has "opened their heart" to touch the life of a Cherry Creek School District student with special needs. This includes, but is not limited to, bus drivers, teachers, cafeteria workers, paraprofessionals, specials teachers (media, art, P.E., music), those in support positions, students, and community employers. Each person who receives this award has gone "above and beyond" to support students with special needs who attend Cherry Creek Schools.

    Important information about nominations:

    • Please make sure to tell a story or give a detailed description of how the nominee went above and beyond what would be expected of any individual in their position or job. Nominations will not be considered without this information. This information needs to be specific and detailed.

    • All nominations must be received by Friday, December 13, 2024 at the close of the business day (4 pm).

    • Each person or family may nominate one individual for the award; however, you may not nominate a member of your own family.

    • Nominations for an entire team cannot be accepted.

    • The number of nominations submitted for each person does not affect the likelihood a person will be chosen as a Golden Heart winner.

    • Winners must be in good standing with the district and are chosen by an independent reading committee.

    • This electronic nomination form should take about 15-30 minutes to complete and must be completed in one sitting. Incomplete nominations and nominations with name and school only will not be accepted.
