Superstars in Education

Today’s students are tomorrow’s workforce.

The Partnership was created to promote charitable and educational activities by developing and fostering programs that encourage private sector involvement in workforce development and education. We all know that the future of Delaware depends on the foundation we build in our schools today. It is imperative that today’s students have tangible skills when they are ready to enter the workforce. Whether college bound, preparing for a trade job or working in the manufacturing world, students need to be equipped with the knowledge and skills to be productive employees and citizens. It is no secret that many of today’s graduates are not entering the workplace with the skills businesses need and require.

The Superstars in Education program is charged with recognizing outstanding educational programs and individual achievements. We realize that many organizations are working to create new programs to foster workforce development; however, these programs cannot be sustained without strong public-private partnerships. These partnerships are key to developing the workforce of tomorrow. We are seeking to focus on critical workplace need areas like science as well as on programs that support the development of student personal and vocational skills. School-business partnerships will also be recognized for their systemic contributions to increasing student achievement, career awareness and workplace skills.


The application process is closed for 2017. The 2018 Superstars in Education application process will open in August of 2017. For more information, contact Cheryl Corn at or (302) 576-6572.


The next Superstars in Education Reception & Awards Ceremony will be held in May 2018.
