Educator of the Year Award
Bike educators do the work on the ground to get more people on bikes -- and riding safely and confidently -- every day in communities across the country.
And education has been a core component of the League's work since the program was created in the 1970s. Today, we have thousands of League Cycling Instructors (LCIs) teaching classes to help people feel more secure on a bike.
To honor and thank those educators who have gone above and beyond in the past year, we're putting out a call for nominations for the 2013 Educator of the Year Award. We're looking for educators who are current LCIs, active in teaching classes in the past year and have shown innovation in their education work. A team of League staff, board members and education committee members will review the nominations and announce the winner later this year.
Tell us: How did the educator change the students' lives? How well did the educator serve their diverse community? What did the educator do that was new, different and effective?
Nominations are open until Dec. 6, 2013. You can submit your nomination here, by filling out this short survey.
The winner will receive a free registration to the 2014 National Bike Summit in Washington, D.C.
