All Yukon educators who are YTA members in good standing are eligible for nomination.

All nominations will be reviewed by the Public Relations Committee.  Those deemed to have met the criteria will have their names entered onto a ballot.  The nominee will share a ballot for a draw and a chance to possibly win a cash prize of $500.

10 draws will be held in total for $1000 – each prize is then shared between the person whose name was drawn and the person who nominated them, so $500 each!

Draws will take place at the AGM on April 27, 2019 at the Westmark Whitehorse Hotel.

Good luck and I hope to see you all there!
