The Linda Brown Fellows and Star Awards recognizes and rewards exceptional teachers and classified (non-teaching) staff in the Tahoe Truckee Unified School District every year.

Nominated by parents, teachers, students, and community members, the Linda Brown Fellows Awards are presented to teachers who demonstrate creativity, exceptional merit, dedication to innovation, and a commitment to making learning exciting every day. 

Star Awards recognize classified staff members who go above and beyond to provide truly outstanding support. 

The nominations for 2021 - 2022 will open in March and are due early May 2022. The nominations are reviewed, and a committee selects recipients. The recipients are announced in the fall of the following school year.
