You're a Star Nominations

You're a Star logo


We are so proud and excited to announce the new DCPS You’re a Star awards, which will be presented throughout the year!
What is a Star? A Star is someone (student, staff, volunteer, parent) who goes above and beyond their normal responsibilities in serving others. This can be during
school or an activity/program your school sponsors, or that a child participates in. A Star is someone who not only puts Kids First but puts others first as well.
How can you nominate a Star? If you have seen a Star, click HERE to submit a brief nomination form.
How is a Star chosen? Stories will be reviewed and a Star chosen by the Superintendent and DCPS PR team, based on criteria such as empathy, passion, relationships, team player, creativity, communication, growth, and any other qualities you believe make your Star stand out.
How is the Star recognized? When a Star is chosen, his or her principal or supervisor will be notified. A special “You’re a Star” T-shirt will be presented to the honoree. We will make arrangements to videotape a short testimonial regarding the Star, and the video will be shared with employees and on all DCPS social media sites.

The Stars We Look Up To Reflect What’s Within Us.

We are looking forward to receiving your Star nominations! If you have any questions, please contact Sophie Howard at Central Office - 270-852-7000 ext. 10003.
