The Iowa City Community School District Shine Award honors employees who go above and beyond for the students and schools in our community. Honorees positively influence, inspire, and leave a lasting impact in the work that they do every day, helping to fulfill the overall District mission.
Nominations can be submitted by students, parents, District employees, businesses, or community members by completing the nomination found on our Forms page.
District employees will be selected and honored throughout the school year to receive this prestigious honor.
Twenty years from now you will be more disappointed by the things that you didn’t do than by the ones you did do, so throw off the bowlines, sail away from safe harbor, catch the trade winds in your sails. Explore. Dream. Discover.
The annual Silver Salute celebration, held in May, recognizes staff members celebrating 25 years of service and/or those who are retiring from the District. This special program allows the honorees to include family and friends and take time to celebrate such a momentous achievement.
