DBEN Activating Student Success Awards 2018

*CALL FOR NOMINATIONS*

It is that time of year again, when the Durham Black Educators’ Network seeks to highlight the achievements of black students in the DDSB community.  The 5th Annual DBEN Activating Student Success Awards celebrates the excellence and achievements of students who identify as Black or African descent.

In the recent research publication, Doing Right by Black Students (http://exchange.youthrex.com/factsheet/working-together-do-right-black-youth, January 2018), Ontario youth list the top ten issues for black youth and families.  The second issue of concern, is the lack of recognition of black excellence. DBEN is proud to have been working to acknowledge and fulfill this concern over the past five years. Let’s join together to encourage the pursuit of excellence.

Completed submissions must be submitted to committee chair, Tracey Grose tracey.grose@ddsb.ca by the deadline March 31 at 11:59 PM.
