Venoco Honors South Coast, North County Crystal Apple Award Winners
Venoco Inc. and the Santa Barbara County Education Office held their annual Education Celebration on May 17 at the Santa Ynez Valley Marriott in Buellton. The event recognized the winners of Venoco’s 2012 Crystal Apple Awards from the South Coast and the North County.
Each year, 10 educators from Santa Barbara County are chosen to receive a Crystal Apple Educator Award. Nominated for this award by their peers, these hard-working people are recognized for their dedication to students and education, their instructional and motivational skills, their ability to challenge and inspire students, and their ability to interact with students, staff and the local community.
School employees, colleagues, parents and students are invited to nominate educators whom they feel have provided exceptional service to students. Awards are presented at the Education Celebration in May, and each award includes a $500 stipend, courtesy of Venoco Inc.
