The foundation’s flagship event
is its Academic Awards Banquet, where the foundation bestows cash awards each
year to recognize outstanding public high school seniors as Academic
All-Staters and innovative educators as Medal for Excellence winners. Since 1987,
the foundation has awarded nearly $3.9 million in merit-based scholarships and
awards. The gala banquet, which is broadcast statewide on OETA, has become the
state’s most prestigious academic event, celebrating the best and brightest in
Oklahoma’s public schools. Academic Awards nomination forms are available at www.ofe.org
in late September with deadlines in late November.
As our founder David Boren often says, it is quality education that will determine the future of our state and nation and what more important group to recognize than our top teachers and students. They set a standard of excellence for others to emulate and honoring them shows that Oklahomans value academic excellence.
