The 14th Annual WAVE Awards is presented by the VCC Education Committee, and celebrates the hard work and dedication of our local educators.

Here is a message from the VCC Education Committee.

Join us for an evening of recognition and appreciation as we honor the teachers who continue to inspire, educate, & motivate our local students. We will also celebrate the lifetime contributions of the second recipient of the Joelle Award for Excellence in Education.

About the WAVE (We Are Venice Education) Awards:  The theme for this year’s WAVE Awards is “Inspiring Unity”.  This theme embraces the challenging political and emotional climate faced by teachers and students. Honored teachers have demonstrated a balanced approach to meeting students’ needs through inclusive and emotionally engaging acts in the classroom.

These educators go above and beyond to provide excellence in education and help our children reach their full potential. This is an opportunity to show our appreciation and to celebrate their passion, hard work, and to acknowledge the positive impact they have on our children’s lives.

Whether you are a parent, student, or member of the community, this event is the perfect way to express your gratitude and support for these exceptional educators. We look forward to sharing this unforgettable evening with you. You will hear inspiring stories, meet incredible teachers, and witness firsthand the transformative power of education.
