In all kinds of ways, both on screen and behind the scenes, educators throughout our community have risen to the challenges presented by teaching during a pandemic. Nevertheless, Tucson's outstanding teachers have kept students engaged and inspired, while helping our community stay connected in a time of change.
That is why this year, Camp Cooper staff and supporters will recognize and award 100 Outstanding Tucson Teachers at our first public event in over two years.
Nominate A Teacher
Use the form below to nominate a teacher from Tucson or southern Arizona who you feel has gone above and beyond. Your nominees will be recognized at our event on November 20th at Camp Cooper, and each teacher will receive a gift valued at $100, sponsored by the Educational Enrichment Foundation and local Tucson businesses.
Attend Our Campfire Celebration
This unforgettable evening event will begin with musical entertainment from Tucson trio (and Camp Cooper alumni), The Desert Music Project. Dinner will be prepared by San Xavier Co-op Farm, where every meal begins with traditional foods grown on the farm or sourced locally. After a teacher recognition ceremony, storyteller Ron Lancaster will captivate and transport us through the power of story around a campfire.
