The selection committee shall consider nominations on an annual basis. Normally, no more than one award will be given per year. A recipient may receive this award only once.
The selection committee shall have the right and the obligation not to grant a teaching award for the year if no candidate is an excellent teacher. This award should only go to exceptional teachers, and not be viewed as an award that good, but not excellent, teachers could plan on receiving. On the other hand, the Selection Committee should also have the right to select more than one award winner for the year if more than one nominee is truly excellent.
The decisions of the Selection Committee are final and not subject to appeal.
