The #EduBroAwards - The Premier Education Awards Event of the Millennium

It's that time of year where everyone runs around and appoints the best of the best of the best. Tim, Jeff, Sir Ken and I (The Edu Bros) have decided that if somebody should give awards out for the best of the best of the best in education, it should be us. 

The EduBros are proud to announce "The EduBro Awards"! Please continue reading after you are done applauding. 

We are going to be doing things a bit differently this year. Instead of posting your nominations on Twitter or your own site, we want your nominations in the comment box below. Feel free pimp this post to get others to vote and use the tag #EduBros for all awards and non-awards related tweets. 

We are also going to do something a little different with the categories. Below, we will have some set in stone categories, but we encourage you to create your own. If nine other people nominate people in the category you created, it will make the cut. Another part of the awards is that you MUST nominate yourself for an award. It can be for an award category we created or one you made up yourself. If you can't pay yourself on the back, how can others? 

You can also suggest categories and nominations using #EduBroAwards on Twitter. We will scan these and add them when needed. 

Once all of the nominations are in, a very select panel will vote on the nominations and the awards will be announced on a Google Hangout. 

Here are the award categories:

Best Mustache in Education:

Best 6 foot or taller red headed NASCAR fan:

Best Hug Giver:

Twitter User Most Likely to RT a Post They Didn't Read:

Best Twitter Avatar:

Best Title to a Blog Post:

The Daniel LaRussa "You're The Best Around" Award:


All nominations must be left in the comment field. 

You must identify yourself in the comment. No anonymous comments.

You must nominate yourself for one of the EduBro created awards or one you created.

A user generated award becomes live when it has been used 10 times. 

Nominations end 24hrs after we announce the deadline. 

Rules are subject to change.

This contest is not endorsed by Sir Ken, but as an official EduBro, he unofficially endorses it. 

Good Luck!

    The Daniel LaRussa "You're The Best Around" Award: Seriously cannot narrow this down. During his horrible year, and years in the past my PLN has been my rock and have been there for me through so much. So yeah unless you need a list of like 100, I have no nominees for this.

    Best Moustache- ohhh so tough between Tom Whitby & Tim Gwynn
    Best Chuck Taylors Ever on the Red Carpet Look- Nick, the nerdy teacher, of course!!!!
    Best Hug- Can I nominate my pug, Rosco? Each hug comes with a free hug ;-) He does have a Facebook page, and well Lisa Dabbs, @TeachingWthSoul I hear gives a mean one and I'm so excited to get one from her

  22. I would like to nominate myself for the "Blogger most likely to edit a blog post after his spouse reads it and corrects his grammer/spelling" because it happens every time.

    I would also like to nominate @johntspencer and @wmchamberlain for the "Best Random Hashtagers" - John cracks me up and inspires me with hashtags like #saidnoteacherever and I don't think William has ever met a hashtag he didn't like.

    Best hugger - I've never been hugged by Kyle Pace but now I feel left out and I'm a little sad about it. I was going to go with Angela Maiers. (Just don't tell my wife. Honey if you are reading this, if you were an edublogger, I'd nominate you.)

    Ok, I think I'll stop now before I get in trouble. :)

  23. @tomwhitby I would like to self-nominate myself for 3 awards:
    Best Mustache in Education:This is a given. I expect to take this walking away. Thank you one and all for your support.I plan to display this award at every conference I attend. It would behoove anyone who would like to see and touch this award in person to vote for me. I will soon be at a conference near you.

    Best 6 foot or taller red headed NASCAR fan: I also would like to self nominate for this award as well. I am not quite 6 feet tall and my hair is now White, but for all anyone knows it was red back in the day. As far as NASCAR goes, I may not know what it is but I support it whatever it is, as I always have. BTW since you did not state the requirements for said award, I will sue your ass for discrimination against old people if I do not get it.

    Additionally, I want the Almost-Tech-Savvy Curmudgeon Award.
    Don't expect any acceptance speech, just send the Awards. BTW is there cash attached to this?

    Hey what about The LUDDITE Award for being able to use technology to advance an agenda without really knowing how to use technology. That is not an Award for me, but I can think of a few candidates.

    Thanks for these Awards Nick. Please get them here before Christmas. I want them under the tree.

  24. Here we go:

    Best Mustache in Education: Tim Gwynn.

    Best 6 foot or taller red headed NASCAR fan: Shannon Miller on a stepstool.

    Best Hug Giver: I'll have to hug every in the category to answer this question. Please form a single line.

    Twitter User Most Likely to RT a Post They Didn't Read: What? Who would do that?

    Best Twitter Avatar (F): Lyn Hilt (with Cole)

    Best Twitter Avatar (M): Andy Marcinek - way too cool.

    Best Title to a Blog Post: Why I Unfollowed 5,000 People

    Other categories that should have been established:

    Best unfollower: Me (Baldy7)

    Best Mayor of the Internet: John Pederson (ijohnpederson)

  25. Best Cookies - mom of @kylepace
    Best Hashtagger - @wmchamberlain founder of #chatchat
    Twitter User Most Likely to RT a Post They Didn't Read - Me (@motechtrainer)

  26. I nominate Jeremy MacDonald for best hipster spectacles. (see FB status update today)

    1. Um. I'm thinking there are several other worthy candidates for this one. I'd have to vote for Royan Lee for best hipster specs.

    2. Royan takes the cake, but you remain nominated. Enjoy your badge.

  27. I am sure the EduBros awards will blow the Bammies out of the box. Not hard, I know, but worth it.

    I nominate myself for an award to be named later.

    I second the nomination of Shannon as the Best 6 foot or taller red headed NASCAR fan and I will also nominate her as the best hugger. Kyle gives too many and cheapens his product. Shannon's are memorable.

    I'd like to nominate Shelly Terrell as the pug lover who least looks like a pug, for which I am very grateful.

    1. I will second Deven's nomination for whichever award he comes up with

    2. Awhhhh thank you Deven. Yours are great too.

      And gotta love you and Tony's Best 6 foot or taller red headed NASCAR fan. :)


  28. Best Mustache in Education: This one is a tie between Akevy Greenblatt (@akevy613) and Dr. David Timony (@DrTimony) Great minds and great mustaches!

    Best 6 foot or taller red-headed NASCAR fan Ron McAllister (@rondmac) I think he must be 6 feet and he has red hair. I have no idea whether he's a NASCAR fan, but he might be

    Best hug giver: Jeff Pulver (@jeffpulver) #140edu just wouldn't be the same without hugs from Jeff

    Twitter user most likely to retweet a post they didn't read (or in this case tweet a post they didn't read) @TeacherCast with 24,600 tweets in just a year and a half; who could possibly read that many. But, he does share great content!

    Best Twitter Avatar: @TeacherCast Love the apple with the graduation hat! If you're tweeting that much, at least look good!

    Best Title to a Blog Post - Angry Birds by Kathy Perret (@kathyperret) She had game lovers around the world reading about assessment for learning with this title

    The Daniel LaRussa "You're the Best Around" Award #EduBroAwards for making me laugh

    I nominate myself Shira Leibowitz (@shiraleibowitz) for: best tweeting female rabbi with a black belt in taekwondo (OK, I admit. I'm looking for a category without much competition. If I'm not a shoe in for this one, I want to meet the others who qualify.)

  29. I'm also voting for Shannon on a step stool as Nascar's hottest 6 foot red head. Also Walter Mckenzie for Facebook Posts That Make Me Most Laugh and Deven Black as Best Tastebuds for a PLNer and Tom Whitby for Hawaiian Shirt Wearing Guru and Adam Brice for Cutest Kid Superhero Pics and John Spencer for Consistent Great Blog Titles like 14 Reasons Multiple Choice Tests Suck, A Ferrari in the School Zone, Only the Pretty Get to Have a Voice, A Seven-Year-Old's Vision for School Reform, and Doing the Dishes #bestthingsinlife

    Most annoying tweets during college football season @amandacdykes #rolltide ;)

    Biggest lurker @Waukeestudent Bet you didn't even know he was there!

    Best Twitter handle @Poh Is it pronounced like Poe or Pooh? I don't know and that makes it #awesomesauce!

    Best clammer @BHS_Doyle I don't really like clams, but if he cooked them for me I would eat them with a smile!

    Best social conscience (tie) @MissShugana and @IraSocol I learn so much from them.

  31. I'd like to nominate myself (@MissShuganah) for best Special Education poet. And also for best non-educator with an education blog.

    Seconding @irasocol for social conscience and I would also nominate him for history of education.

    I nominate @courosa and @gcouros for best brother act.

  32. Seconding Shelly Terrell on John Spencer for best consistent blog titles. They are always interesting and upbeat! Is the only thing I legitly read in my Google Reader feed.

    Will Chamberlain for best hashtagger and #chatchatter Always there to talk when you need someone whether it’s fun or serious (most times both simultaneously). He ALWAYS brightens my day.

    @russgoerend Has the best incite and knowledge on many various topics: education, life, finance, history, technology to name a few of our conversations. Is also the best proofreader and short story teller out there.

    And for myself, well, I’ll go with best nerdy, education reformist at 15 years. I really could not imagine my life without Twitter and my (older in age, not necessarily maturity) PLC.

  33. Now this is an EduAward I can really get behind :)

    Best Mustache in Education: It's a tough call - I am going have to say it is a tie between Tim and Tom. I mean Tim has got the grooming thing going, which is awesome - but Tom has that whole "I wouldn't recognize you if this thing was shaved off" look.

    Best 6 foot or taller red headed NASCAR fan: Um... That would be my Bacon-Loving Buddy @web20classroom

    Best Hug Giver: Another tough category... It's been a few months for me. But I would have to give this another tie between @shannonmmiller and @kylepace.

    Best Twitter Avatar: I have to give it to @stumpteacher - not the current version - but the "old school" one - I am a sucker for the Superman pose...

    And I nominate myself for the "Most slides in one presentation" Award - which I will be competing with myself again for next year.

    Best 6 foot or taller red headed NASCAR fan: @web20classroom

    Best Hug Giver: Um...@kylepace.

    Twitter User Most Likely to RT a Post They Didn't Read: Um...most of us. It's a group award.

  36. This comment has been removed by the author.

    1. Let's try this again:

      Best Bed and Breakfast in Nebraska: @mrskmpeters

      Cutest kids: @mrmacnology...there was no bias in this decision, just facts.

    2. Why do I get the feeling you were going to call me something else and thought better of it?

    3. I second the Best Bed & Breakfast in Nebraska! Where are my other visitors to attest to this??

  37. Best Mustache in Education: Tim Gwynn. At this point, I feel it has become sentient and I don't want to hurt it's feelings by not nominating.

    Best 6 foot or taller red headed NASCAR fan: Chuck Norris

    Best Hug Giver: Nick's Mustache. Don't ask.

    Twitter User Most Likely to RT a Post They Didn't Read: That Diane Ravitch chick is a spammer.

    Best Twitter Avatar: Sarah Silverman. Mustached and everything.

    Best Title to a Blog Post: "I am not a brand, you are not a brand, and neither are our students" --> a title to a draft post of mine that has been sitting around for almost 3 years waiting to be written. This counts as my self-nomination even though it doesn't actually exist.

    The Daniel LaRussa "You're The Best Around" Award: I vote for William Chamberlain because up until now I had no idea that a person could be a "clammer"

  38. Best Mustache in Education: I'm going with Tom Whitby on this one. That mustache says integrity. Reminds me of the dude who sells soup and medical equipment.

    Best 6 foot or taller red headed NASCAR fan: I've never met her, but I've always imagined that would be @ktenkely

    Best Hug Giver: I've never experienced a Kyle Pace hug, but if you say so... Otherwise, I'm going with @angelamaiers. Pretty sure her whole life is a hug.

    Twitter User Most Likely to RT a Post They Didn't Read: Define read.

    Best Twitter Avatar: That would be @preschoolgems

    Best Title to a Blog Post: Facebook is not a Chair by @johntspencer. I was confused about that. Then I saw that post.

    I nominate myself for most likely to be the anti-tweeter to Amanda Dykes on January 7th. #GoIrish

  39. I nominate @stevenjmogg for "The Best Middle School 120 lb Football Assistant Coach of All-Time"

  40. Does the BEST HUGGER category include tree huggers? If so, I nominate myself. I have photographic proof that I hug trees ... really well.

  41. I nominate myself, @bethstill, for the award for Best Educrib Coordinator. I have a special talent for finding great accommodations that are cheap and allow me to stay with my favorite people in the world!

    Best Mustache in Education: Tim Gwynn

    Best 6 foot or taller red headed NASCAR fan: Opie!

    Best Hug Giver: Kyle Pace, but I will need at least one more to make sure.

    Twitter User Most Likely to RT a Post They Didn't Read: nobody ever does this ;)

    Best Twitter Avatar: Josh Stumpenhorst because I was the one who suggested that he wear the Superman shirt for the photoshoot.

    Best Title to a Blog Post: Why I Unfollowed 5,000 People by Tony Baldesaro

    The Daniel LaRussa "You're The Best Around" Award: Scott Floyd because he has always been there when I have asked for help and advice.

    I also vote for @mrskmpters for Best Bed and Breakfast in Nebraska which actually did not include breakfast, but did include lots of sloppy, wet kisses from Murphy!

    Handiest Former ISTE Newbie- Richard Byrne (Thank you for all your help on my house. We will make sure to time another remodeling project for next November.)

    Person Beth Still would most want to trade places with- Tie between Audrey Watters and Diane Laufenberg- Hardly a day goes by when I don’t think about how amazing it would be to go to all of the places you ladies visit. Not to mention you are both brilliant.

    Most Likely to Have “Hot” Item on them- Steve Johnson (If you want the background behind this nomination then find me at ISTE13.)

    1. I second Beth's nomination of herself for Best EduCrib Coordinator! The Hacienda was A-MAH-ZING!

    2. Yes for the EduCrib Coordinator! and HAHA on the rollers!!

  42. So since I am definitely going to lose out best hugger to Kyle - which means I am totally unfollowing and unfriending him because I can't deal with that - I will now nominate myself for
    "Most fashionable will super fat and morning sick because of twin pregnancy!"

    And if Kyle takes that one too then I know these awards are rigged

    And I think Nick gets the award for supposedly nicest guy on Twitter

    1. If there was a 'like' button here, I would have pressed it. Awesome! Won't agree with the super fat, but definitely most fashionable -- loved the blog posts! I'll second this nomination!

  43. I nominate myself for Best Educator Who Should Have a Record Deal... :) Give me a mic and some Adele and I'm a happy girl!

    1. I would offer a hug, but according to these nominations, that is not my strength.

    2. Maybe I could touch the magical mustache.

    3. Yes, you may touch it. It truly is magical. It is not the plain type of mundane and muddled mustache that Tim Gwynn has. It is both Regal and Magical. Thanks for the recognition. Damn your eyes Tim Gwynn!

  54. I like the best unfollower award and agree with @baldy7 's self-nomination.

    I would like to add a few categories:

    Best Couros on Twitter (6 feet and over category)...I will let the people speak on this one.

    Nicest person I have ever met: @patrickmlarkin

    Best DMer award goes to @ChrisWejr.

    Tweeter that you can hear their voice when they tweet: @amandacdykes y'all!

    Best use of hashtags in blog posts: @plugusin

    Most influential dinner bought for me by a tweeter: @shareski

    Most tweeted restaurant by educators whether they like it or not: @AppleBees

    Best thing to do at edconferences: #karaoke

    Lifetime achievement award for their constant comments on education related articles: @Spammers

    Best comment I have ever seen on a blog: "Your blog is nice."- Posted on Dean Shareski's blog by the winner of the LTA winner.

    Best awards gala that wasn't really awards or a gala but was still fun: The Bammys

    Best award show that reminded me of both Bam Bam from the Flinstones and Bam Bam Bigelow: The Bammys

    Award ceremony name that Amanda Dykes should steal for educators in her state: Triple winner time --> The Bammys!

  55. I humbly nominate, second, third, or wherever these may be at thus far as follows:

    Best blog post title > @RachelAnneLevy's "Sex, Shit 'n Standardized Testing!"

    Best Hashtag > @wmchamberlain's #chatchat (#justsayin')

    Though I don't like to nominate myself for things, but out of respect to the rules, I nominate myself for > Best handle honoring one of the greatest dogs that ever lived: @swpax

    And though I won't nominate myself for this, if anyone in the edutwittersphere ever had the opportunity to hug me, I mean really hug me, I can confidently state they'd find my hugs worthy of recognition; a great big, but gentle giant bear hug that takes you off your feet without feeling squeezed, and it energizes more then the bunny ever could. #justsayin'
