Established by Queen’s Chancellor Emeritus A. Charles Baillie, the Baillie Award allows undergraduate Queen’s students in their graduating year to honour a high school teacher who had a formative role in their academic careers. Whether they instilled a love of learning or inspired academic excellence, the award celebrates exceptional educators and their essential role in developing Queen’s graduates.

“The volume of nominations we receive each year reflects the positive role that so many secondary school teachers play in inspiring their students to pursue higher education,” says Vice-Provost and Dean of Student Affairs Ann Tierney. “We are grateful for Chancellor Emeritus Baillie’s generosity in establishing this program to recognize excellence in secondary school teaching.”

Up to five awards are presented each year. Teacher-recipients are invited to campus to receive their award at their student-nominee's convocation ceremony.

The deadline for submission is March 11 at 8:30 am.

Students can learn more and submit their nominations through the Student Affairs Website.
