What is LifeChanger of the Year?
LifeChanger of the Year is an annual program that recognizes and rewards K-12 educators and school employees from around the country. A LifeChanger could be a math teacher who stays after school to tutor struggling students, a guidance counselor who encourages every student to reach their full potential, or a custodian who offers encouraging words. Our program aims to honor those who are making a significant difference in the lives of students by exemplifying excellence, positive influence and leadership.
We aim to make sure every nominee receives recognition and appreciation for the work that they do. At the end of each award cycle, our selection committee chooses fifteen of those nominees as our Top 15 LifeChangers of the Year and one nominee whose community showed the most support as the recipient of the LifeChanger Spirit Award.
LifeChanger of the Year is a program funded and run by National Life Group and the National Life Group Foundation.
Do you know a LifeChanger?
We all know at least one educator who stands out from the crowd. There are millions of teachers, principals, administrative assistants, superintendents, custodians, nurses, bus drivers and coaches in our schools making a difference in the lives of our children.
