Educators work hard and put in long hours. Between school work, family, and other obligations, there is hardly any time left. But you have chosen to stand up for your profession by serving as an ATPE volunteer leader. You and other ATPE volunteer leaders have given precious time and energy toward making Texas public education better. You and your fellow leaders deserve to be recognized!

One way ATPE honors our leaders is through the ATPE Doug Rogers Campus Representative of the Year Award. This award acknowledges special ATPE volunteers who prove themselves essential to the continued growth and development of our grassroots organization. Each recipient receives a check for $1,000, and the recipient’s local unit receives a check for $250 to be used for future local unit activities. The award is presented in three different categories based on membership size.

ATPE also honors the collective work of our local units through the ATPE Local Unit of the Year Award. The Local Unit of the Year Award acknowledges a local unit’s superior efforts and accomplishments during the year. Each winning local unit will receive a check for $1,000. The Local Unit of the Year Award is presented in four categories based on membership size.
