Applauding Brevard’s Champions

Each year, Brevard Schools Foundation Applauds Brevard’s Champions at the biggest educational event of the year – The ABC Awards. In red carpet fashion, we showcase the outstanding contributions of those who help strengthen the quality of public education in Brevard County including Teacher of the Year, Employee of the Year, Volunteers of the Year, Business Partners of Distinction, and Administrators of the Year. Honorees from each school and other guests are treated to a reception featuring A Taste of Brevard Public Schools Culinary Arts Programs and live entertainment on the mainstage of the King Center. Sponsorships support these special recognitions and provide a way to say thank you to those in service to our children.
