About the EDDY Awards 

The EDDY Awards is an annual event to celebrate Duval County's leading teachers. It 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 VyStar Duval County Teacher of the Year.
