The WAVE Awards were launched in 2011 to acknowledge the enormous contribution teachers make every day to the children of Venice and the surrounding areas. Teachers are nominated and selected by their peers for excellence and recognized at an awards dinner. The event has also become a forum for educators, parents and community leaders to share ideas and build relationships.


About Venice Chamber of Commerce Education Committee
