Rising Star Award

  • The Rising Star Award is designed to honor a certified staff member (non-administrative) who is new to the field of education (5 or fewer years of teaching/school experience) and has already demonstrated the ability to have a positive impact on students.  The nominee must be returning to Harrisonville Schools for the 2023-24 school year.

    Nominations for the award can be submitted by parents, students, community members, and colleagues.  Once the nomination deadline has passed, a district committee selects finalists.  Those finalists are interviewed by a panel of judges from outside the school district.  The winner is named in April and honored during the district's End-of-the-Year Celebration.
