Rising Star Awards

Rising Star Awards nominate a colleague or community partner

The Rising Star Employee & Volunteer of the Year Awards recognize individual staff members who have gone above and beyond to support a learning and working environment where our students are valued and understood, take risks in learning and succeed academically, and know that Oak Harbor believes in their future.

The new #OneOakHarbor Community Partner of the Year award will recognize a community partner (individual or organization) who has been an advocate and collaborator for the success of Oak Harbor Public Schools.

We encourage you to nominate a colleague or community partner who has shown superior service to our schools this academic year.

Award Categories:

  • Substitute of the Year
  • Classified Staff of the Year
  • Volunteer of the Year
  • Coach of the Year
  • Administrator of the Year
  • Certificated Staff of the Year
  • Community Partner of the Year

Nominations closed on May 1.

The Rising Star Award Winners will be announced on this page soon, recognized with a custom plaque created by OHHS CTE students in front of their peers in May, invited to be recognized at the June 10 School Board meeting, and recognized with the public during the 2025 State of the Schools community event in January.

All nominees will be recognized on the #OneOakHarbor Wall of Gratitude.

Thank you for taking the time to uplift those around you!
