Every day, our educators and public employees are stepping up, working hard and doing what’s right for our kids and communities. We want to celebrate the awesome jobs they do for us all by recognizing them as a 2021 Everyday Hero Award winner!

If you know someone who always goes above and beyond in service to the people of North Dakota, nominate them as an Everyday Hero. Those eligible include:

  • A public school teacher
  • A professor at a public university
  • Someone who works as support staff in public education, as a para-educator, bus driver, nurse, administrative assistant or any other role
  • An employee for a public agency on the city, county or state level in North Dakota


Share the name of the Everyday Hero in your life & why you think they’re worthy of recognition. We’ll select the 10 best nominations and post them digitally for the public to vote on their favorites. The three highest vote-getters will receive an award and will be recognized in a special ceremony in their community. NDU President Nick Archuleta, administrators, local leaders and co-workers will host a recognition event and we’ll celebrate our Heroes in epic fashion!
