Nominate an AFT Everyday Hero

Countless IFT members go beyond their regular responsibilities and make a difference every day in their workplace or the community. Give these outstanding Illinois professionals the recognition they deserve by nominating them to be 2016 AFT Everyday Heroes!

The annual AFT awards program is designed to recognize members across the country who have made a difference in the workplace or had a profound, positive impact on the community. Learn about previous IFT winners here.

Once nominations are received, the AFT will identify semifinalists from each constituency group: teachers, PSRPs, early childhood educators, higher education faculty, public employees, healthcare professionals, and retirees. AFT members nationwide will vote during the spring, and finalists will be honored at the 2016 AFT convention in Minneapolis in July.

When you nominate a hero, you will be entered in a drawing to win a $250 American Express gift card. Nominations are due on March 11. (Nominees must be IFT/AFT members.) Use this online form to nominate IFT heroes today!
