Great things are happening! Tell us about them!

Help us honor those doing GREAT work!! OSSCC invites you to nominate a person, a school, a district or an organization that has been doing great things to make schools a safe and nurturing place for students, especially LGBTQIA+ students. The Mission of OSSCC is to make Oregon schools safe for all students, teachers and families, and we want to honor those who are working to support this Mission.

There are some wonderful educators who are doing things to make the lives of LGBTQIA+ students safer in school … and we want you to tell us about them. It is important that these special efforts be recognized to celebrate the amazing work happening across the State of Oregon. It is also important to provide other members of our community with real Oregon examples of things that are working to make schools better for LGBTQIA+ and all youth.

Use the NOMINATION BUTTON below by February 24, 2023.

The Safe Schools Awards event will be held in the late Spring of 2023. We will keep you posted with the details.
