Nominations for Dawbarn Award

Below is a statement regarding the Dawbarn Awards.  I encourage you to send this message out to your staff and parents. Thank you:
“The Community Foundation invites you or your child to nominate someone from the public school districts in Augusta County, Staunton, and Waynesboro for a prestigious Dawbarn Education Award. The Foundation will select ten recipients, each of whom will receive a $10,000 award in April.  Nominations must be completed online at by December 16.  Along with exceptional teachers, the Foundation has also selected guidance counselors, coaches, secretaries, custodians, volunteers, bus drivers, and others who routinely go above and beyond what we expect of them in order to make a difference in the lives of students.  For more information, please visit, or call the Community Foundation at 540-213-2150.”
