Since 1985, the leaders of New Jersey’s teacher preparation colleges and universities have been invited to submit the dossiers of their three most outstanding prospective teachers into competition for this award. This annual award publicly recognizes the year’s fifteen top graduates of teacher education programs in New Jersey’s colleges and universities. An independent panel of esteemed New Jersey educators evaluates these dossiers to select the award recipients.
