In recognition of the contributions made by members, the ETT Awards Committee has created the FNMI Award.

This award may be given to one member who integrates FNMI ideas and values into their teaching philosophy. ETT members are encouraged to submit nominees from all divisions, including primary, junior, and intermediate. A sum of $100.00 shall be given to each recipient of this award. A teacher may be the recipient of this award once during their career. The recipients of the FNMI Award shall be recognized at the Annual Dinner.
