Awards Galore!

Winter is right around the corner and with it, TeamMates’ Recognition event! Each year, TeamMates recognizes mentees, mentors, and facilitators with an award. Nominations for these awards are now open until December 8th.

Student Achievement Award

The Student Achievement Award is presented to mentees who are nominated by their mentor or school staff for demonstrating growth whether through academic performance, improved attendance, or personal growth.

Is this the year you nominate them to receive a Student Achievement award?

Mentor Hall of Fame Award

A mentor is nominated to the Hall of Fame by a mentee, school personnel, or a parent, to recognize how the mentor’s weekly contribution of time has led to positive change in the life of the mentee. Mentors must be matched with their mentees for at least three years, and they must exemplify outstanding mentor qualities to be eligible for this recognition.

Do you want to express how awesome you think your mentor is?

Facilitator Award of Excellence

The Judi Yost Facilitator Award of Excellence is named after Judi Yost, a long time facilitator for the Lincoln TeamMates program. Judi helped to formalize the role of a facilitator in the early years of the program and continued to serve for more than twenty years.

The “Yostie” is given to individuals who consistently do an exceptional job of overseeing the TeamMates program at their school. Mentors nominate facilitators who provide excellent support and promote a positive mentoring culture in their schools.

And what about your facilitator? Would you like to recognize them for their efforts to support TeamMates matches including your own?
