The Hillsboro Chamber is accepting nominations for those who go above and beyond to make education a greater experience in Hillsboro.

Nominations are accepted in three categories: licensed staff, administrators, and support staff.

There are a maximum of three nominees per school.

Each staff member nominated will be recognized at their respective school or workplace with a special ceremony. Winners of the awards will be announced at the Crystal Apple Banquet on Feb. 27, 2014.
