Golden Apple asking for nominations for best principal


If you know a principal who you believe deserves to be honored for their outstanding work, the Golden Apple Foundation wants to hear from you.

The foundation is asking teachers, administrators, parents, and students from Winnebago and Boone counties to nominate principals for the 2013 Puri Family Outstanding Principal Award.

Nominees should be a middle school or high school principal with at least five years experience as an administrator. They should also meet the following criteria:

  • Demonstrate commitment to positive student achievement and development
  • Foster professional growth and leadership development among teachers
  • Establish a positive learning climate
  • Foster a sense of community in the school

The winning principal will receive $1,500 in cash, compliments of the Puri family, to be used in his or her school and $500 in Volcano Falls gift certificates to reward students.

The winner will be surprised in their school with the award and recognized at the 17th Annual Golden Apple Banquet on April 26.

Nomination forms can be found at and must include a letter of support from a school parent and a letter of support from a school faculty member. Nominations must be in by 5:00 p.m. on Thursday, February 7. You can mail them to Golden Apple Foundation, 5050 East State Street, Rockford, IL 61108, or fax them to 394-5014.
