Rookie Teachers of the Year Awards

for first-year New Hanover County teachers

Every year, the club gives cash prizes to five teachers in the New Hanover County school system. Turnover is high among beginning educators, and this award program is meant to recognize the dedication of those who are finding their way during their first year in the classroom.

In addition to a plaque, the five honorees get a cash award: $500 for each of the finalists and $1,000 for the top winner. Honorees are selected by a committee of school administrators and Rotarians. The winners are announced at a lunch meeting in February.
