WHAT: LifeChanger of the Year 

An annual contest that recognizes and rewards K-12 school employees and educators who make a positive difference in the lives of students all across the country.

Nominating your LifeChanger is simple, and it only takes a couple easy steps.

1) Make sure your nominee is eligible. They must be a K-12 educator, teacher, administrator, or any member of a school’s staff* who makes a positive difference in the lives of students.

Anyone – including administrators – can nominate up to three educators per academic year for LifeChanger of the Year. Students are also welcome to submit nominations, but must have the support of an adult if under the age of 18.

2) Complete the nomination form – *You’ll need the nominees name, email and school information. Then, all you need to do is tell us about how your LifeChanger has made an impact in your school or district. Are they filled with school spirit? Do they nurture students? Then you are suggested to add a short essay and/ or video to your nominations.


Napoleon Community Schools has the most amazing staff! So why not flood their system with Pirate nominations?

If a Napoleon Employee is selected both the school and the employee will win money.
