2018 BrightFish Awards

Recognizing our awesome students and teachers

It's awards season again! 

We're coming to the end of the 2017-18 school year, which means it's time to acknowledge the hard work and commitment from our BrightFish students and teachers. 

There are three awards categories this year:

The BrightFish All-Star Award recognizes students with the top points nationally in BrightFish Reading. Prizes: 1st Place - $100 Amazon gift card; 2nd Place - $50; 3rd place - $25.

The BrightFish District Leader Award goes to the classes with the highest average points in their districts, with 10 or more schools using the program. Prizes: Teacher: $100 Amazon gift card; Class: celebration party.

New: The BrightFish Rising Star Award goes to the student who has shown the most progress in BrightFish this year. Teachers can submit a 1-minute video telling us about BrightFish students who have worked hard in the program and achieved significant milestones in their reading improvement. Prize: $100 Amazon Gift Card (teacher and student). You can submit your testimonial by clicking here.
