“The Huntsman Education Awards reward bright and capable individuals working in Utah’s public schools. By celebrating these individuals, the awards seek to inspire current educators and to rekindle interest in the teaching profession among young people. Eleven winners will be selected in recognition of their outstanding contributions to Utah’s public school system and each will receive $10,000, donated by the Huntsman family,” states the Huntsman website.

“The late Jon M. Huntsman, Sr. and his wife Karen established the Huntsman Education Awards in 1993 as an expression of their passion for supporting and enhancing publicly funded education. Because Jon Huntsman, Sr. came from a long line of educators, bolstering public education in Utah will always be a very personal labor of love for the Huntsman family. The Huntsmans are deeply humbled and gratified that these awards are considered to be among the most prestigious honors for individual educators in the state. The Huntsman family is closely involved in the exhaustive selection process, after which winners are invited to an awards banquet for past and current honorees, where they will receive a crystal obelisk and a check for $10,000. Because the object of the awards is to celebrate the individuals who have made unique contributions to the lives and education of Utah’s public schoolchildren, the Huntsmans prefer that honorees spend their award money on themselves, instead of reinvesting in their schools or classrooms,” the site reads.
