DCPS You're a Star Awards

You're a Star



What is a Star? A Star is someone (students, staff, volunteers, parents) who goes above and beyond their normal responsibilities in serving others. This can be during school or an activity/program your school sponsors, or that a child participates in. A Star is also someone who not only puts Kids First but others as well. 

How can you nominate a Star? If you have seen a Star, click HERE to submit a brief nomination form.

How is a Star chosen? Stories will be reviewed and a Star is chosen by a committee of support and certified staff members based on criteria such as empathy, passion, relationships, team player, creativity, communication, growth, and any other qualities you believe make your Star stand out. 

When a Star is chosen, the principal/ supervisor will be notified. DCPS video communications specialist Dylan Hammons will make arrangements to videotape a short testimonial regarding the Star. A "You're A Star" shirt will be presented to the honoree and the video will be shared with employees and all DCPS social media sites. 

Nominees who are not selected as Stars will receive a congratulatory letter and medallion at the end of the year.

The Stars We Look Up To Reflect What’s Within Us.

We are looking forward to receiving your Star nominations! If you have any questions, please the DCPS Central Office - 270-852-7000 or
