The 2016 Superstars in Education program will honor this year’s winning programs with a reception followed by an awards ceremony on May 2, 2016 at 4:45 p.m. at the Wilmington University’s Doberstein Admissions Center Auditorium in New Castle. Plan to join us to celebrate the 2016 award winning programs. In 2015, we recognized six fantastic programs from across Delaware. Click here to watch the 2015 video.
The Superstars in Education program is charged with recognizing outstanding educational programs and individual achievements. This event highlights excellence in science teaching, integrated classroom technology practices, and school-to-career partnerships. Additionally, a special award will be presented recognizing business/community leadership in supporting education.
The program also serves the business community and its investment in the future. Delaware’s future 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. Today’s students are tomorrow’s workforce.
The Partnership, Inc. was created to promote charitable and educational activities by developing and fostering programs that encourage private sector involvement in workforce development and education. Sponsors are recognized at the ceremony and throughout the event’s promotion and publicity. We ask you to pledge sponsorship by March 11, 2016 to maximize visibility for your support.

Please join us in celebrating excellence in education and our commitment to forging strong business partnerships with schools in Delaware.
