A maximum of five winners will be selected for each Recognition Reception. Recognition Receptions will be held three times each school year – in fall, winter and spring.

    How are the winners recognized?
    Award Recipients will receive an award, and their names will be listed on a plaque that is perpetually displayed in the Superintendent's Office. All nominees will receive a certificate of appreciation.

    When will recipients be recognized? 
    The district will host three Recognition Receptions in the fall, winter and spring. Most receptions are held at the Blackbox Theater at Reading Intermediate High School.
