JANUARY 17, 2020, 6:30 PM - 10 PM

Hyatt Regency downtown

The EDDY Awards, an annual event to celebrate Duval County's leading teachers, is a time-honored tradition that has grown into its new mission to elevate the role of Jacksonville's best teachers. Each year, we celebrate each school's Teacher of the Year and announce the winner of the Florida Blue Duval County Teacher of the Year. This year, the EDDY Awards take place on January 17, 2020. 

Individual Tickets

Each school's Teacher of the Year is offered a complimentary ticket, along with the school's principal and one guest. Tickets are also available to friends and family of educators and members of the public.


Table Purchases for Principals

Principals who wish to purchase an entire table for their school can do so at a discounted rate. For $500, principals can buy seven tickets for guests from their school, in addition to the three complimentary tickets they receive.



The EDDYs are made possible by the generosity of our sponsors, including Florida Blue, our title sponsor. Sponsorship packages are available to businesses that want to support excellence in teaching.
