Robert Hillmer Award

2020 Nomination form – due January 31, 2020

The Robert Hillmer Award is presented annually to an outstanding Business Educator. Mr. and Mrs. George Hillmer originally donated funds for this award to the Ontario Business Educators’ Association in memory of their late son, Robert. OBEA is proud to continue the tradition of this award for over 50 years. This is the highest honour awarded by OBEA and it represents a career-long contribution to education focusing on professional leadership in the school, the Board, the community, and the province. Nomination forms are sent to the Directors of Education of every Board, and, as well, they are available on the OBEA website. Any member of OBEA can nominate a worthy candidate for this prestigious award.
