Up to three awards will be made in each of the following categories:

Who Can Be Nominated? (Eligibility)
The Individual Pioneer Award is presented to an individual who may not be active currently, but who has made extraordinary contributions in the past, and whose impact has had a profound systemwide effect on MCPS over the years.
The other awards go to an individual (including MCPS students), group, or business that has, within the past three years, provided sustained service, support, and commitment to public education, as demonstrated by:
An outstanding contribution of time and expertise to MCPS programs
The development and/or implementation of an exemplary program or project
A contribution that results in systemwide benefit
