Press Release

Washington, DC:   U.S. Rep. Gus Bilirakis (FL-12) announced today his office is accepting nominations for his annual Teacher of the Year awards to honor the outstanding educators of Florida’s 12th District. The deadline for nominations is April 27, 2018.  Teachers and educators from all schools in District 12, and all grades are eligible.  Nominations should be emailed to, and include the name, school, and contact information of the nominee.  An awards ceremony will be held next month. 

I grew up attending school here in Florida’s 12th District, and so did my children. I know firsthand how fortunate we are to have such incredible educators in our community.  Theirs is too often a thankless job, yet every day in classrooms across our community teachers show up in the face of unspeakable challenges and pour their hearts and souls into making a difference in the lives of our children. That’s why it’s so important we recognize those who make the classroom a special place for the next generation to learn and grow. If one of these special individuals has touched your life in some way, I encourage you to share your story so that we can recognize their efforts, ” said Congressman Bilirakis.
