Teacher Tribute 2021 “Mask-erade”

The Santa Clarita Valley Education Foundation along with the superintendents from Castaic USD, Newhall SD, Saugus USD, Sulphur Springs USD and the Wm. S Hart District, invite the community to help honor the 2020/2021 Teachers of the Year. The 37th Annual Teacher Tribute, MASK-ERADE, will take place on Friday, April 30, 2021.

“The theme of the event was selected because behind every mask is a person and behind every person is a story. We felt that after spending a year wearing a mask and teaching in a virtual world, we needed to emphasize the faces and stories of these outstanding teachers”, says Executive Director Jackie Hartmann. “We can’t wait to share their stories. They deserve to be recognized, now more than ever.”

Teacher Tribute will be a hybrid event. Honorees will be provided with a socially-distanced red-carpet experience prior to the virtual ceremony. They can be joined by anyone sharing their household, walk a red carpet, be photographed by “paparazzi” and receive a catered meal from Marston’s, along with a swag bag filled with wine, dessert, a personalized award, printed program, tote and more.

The virtual ceremony will premiere at 6 p.m. PST on the SCVEF Facebook page, SCVTV’s Facebook page. on the SCVEF and SCVTV websites, on local cable channels Spectrum 20 and AT&T 99, and on SCVTV’s Apple TV & Roku apps. Honorees can invite their family and friends from anywhere in the world to join them “at” a virtual viewing party!

“Last year one of the honorees invited their family from India to watch. What a unique advantage it was to hold the event virtually”, said Hartmann.

There is no cost for guests to join in the celebration. Premier Partners of the SCV Education Foundation are helping to fund the cost of the tribute.

“Our year-round education partners make such a difference to our organization,” Hartmann said. “I have to say thank you to JSB Development, the California Credit Union, Harley Davidson of Santa Clarita, Pocock Brewing Company, FivePoint, Foster Construction, Claremont Homes and SoCaGas for their on-going support of public schools in Santa Clarita”.

The SCV Education Foundation is looking for gift basket sponsors and donations for swag bag items. Those interested in supporting Teacher Tribute are asked to visit their website at or text “MASKERADE” to 44-321.
Teacher Tribute honors one teacher from each of the 54 public schools who are selected by their peers and school administrators.
