The Huntsman Awards for Excellence in Education — now celebrating 25 years of honoring Utah educators ­— are open for nominations through 5 p.m. on March 17.

The awards committee selects 11 winners from around the state, including six teachers, three administrators, a special education teacher and a volunteer. The Jon M. Huntsman family presents a crystal obelisk and a check for $10,000 to each of the winners.

"We know there are outstanding educators from border to border who labor every day to make sure our children are engaged in learning and are preparing for the future," Karen Huntsman said in a news release. "It is a privilege for our family and the Awards Committee to acknowledge their efforts and celebrate their success."

The committee includes citizens and educators. This year's recipients will be announced in late April, and the awards will be presented at a banquet in Salt Lake City in May.
