Prime Minister Justin Trudeau honored the 11 national recipients of the Prime Minister's Award (PPM) for excellence in teaching.

The Prime Minister's Awards for Excellence in Teaching
The Awards honor outstanding and innovative teachers from all disciplines, at the elementary and secondary levels, who inspire their students to learn and help them acquire the skills they will need to excel in the society to come.

Quebec national winner
The Quebec winner of a Certificate of Excellence at the national level is Manon St-Hilaire, teacher of 6e year at the Ste-Thérèse-de-l'Enfant-Jésus elementary school in Saint-Jérôme.

A devoted teacher, Manon has earned this honor in particular thanks to her teaching methods, but also thanks to her exceptional achievements which include the deposition, with the whole of her class, of a memoir during the public hearings on the Québec's energy future presented to the two commissioners.

In addition, Manon accompanied some of her students to make a presentation to the city council on the subject of water management. The municipality of Saint-Jérôme was so impressed that it asked the class to lead a public workshop on responsible water consumption.

Finally, two of his students won first and third prizes in the Twitterature Contest open to all the Francophonie in the Americas.

Regional prices
Other Quebecers have also won regional awards, namely Karine St-Cyr and Vincent Bilodeau, both recipients of a Certificate of Honor. I invite you to consult the government pages for more details.
