Every year members of the film industry gather for the Academy Awards Ceremony. Actors, directors, writers, musicians, and others who are chosen the best in their nomination category are invited onstage to receive the Oscar, a statuette depicting a knight holding a crusader’s sword standing on a reel of film.The award is a symbol of distinction, noting high achievement in motion picture production and performance.

The NFPA Public Education Division also bestows an honor for high achievement. The Fire and Life Safety Educator of the Year Award. It includes a $1,000 honorarium for the recipient, travel to NFPA Conference for an award presentation, and a $1,000 donation to the local fire department to support public education activities.

Educators who use NFPA materials in a consistent and creative way, demonstrate excellence and innovation, reaching out to the community with NFPA materials, and view NFPA as the source for safety information are encouraged to apply.

There’s not much time left. The application deadline is Friday, February 20th.

Like the Oscars, the winner is honored onstage with a lovely statuette. In the case of the Fire and Life Safety Educator of the Year Award, it’s a Sparky the Fire Dog® statuette with the recipient’s name engraved on the base.
