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. 

Tickets & Tables

Each school's Teacher of the Year is offered a complimentary ticket, along with the school's principal and one guest. Ticket sales to the public are closed at this time because of capacity. If you want to register your guests or have questions about tickets, please contact Warren Buck at warren@jaxpef.org.

Table Purchases for Principal Sponsorships

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.
