Indiana Society for Health and Physical Educators

And the award goes to . . .

Nominate. Apply. Or both.

INSHAPE has a rich tradition of recognizing bright and selfless professionals. Many advance to the district and national stages. In fact, three of our 2017 Teachers of the Year are currently candidates for National Teachers of the Year recognition at the SHAPE America convention in Nashville (March 20-24).
Most INSHAPE awards do not require a nomination. In fact, only two (Legacy and Special Contributor) are selected from nominations. All other awards are selected from applications.
For many, the first step is a nudge – a gentle encouragement from a colleague. This is my nudge to you. Take a moment to learn more about INSHAPE awards not only for yourself but for other deserving individuals.
If an award is right for you, please apply. If you know candidates, nudge and nominate them.
Applications are due by April 1. You’ve been nudged!

Gary Lemke,
INSHAPE President
