Press Release

Washington, D.C. – 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 21, 2017.

“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 teachers and educators in our community,” said Bilirakis. “Being a teacher can often be a thankless job. 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.”

Teachers and educators from all schools 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.
