We have presented a collection of award certificates for teachers to appreciate them for their hard work, achievement and performance through out the year. We all remember the teacher who had such a profound impact on us that to this day we still equate something that was important, or even unimportant but brilliantly enlightening, with that teacher. It may have been the discovery of a hidden talent, a sudden understanding of something that had been a gigantic puzzle or, maybe, those words of encouragement that created the self-image we still have today. That is a teacher who deserves an award certificate.
There are many teachers who deserve award certificates. Their influence on their students lasts a lifetime. They set children on the path to respecting education and learning; they encourage adolescents to set goals and to achieve them; they inspire college students to reach their potential. They present awards, and sometimes receive them, too.
Teacher awards may be determined by students or colleagues, sometimes by parents. Sponsors set up a nominating process and present awards to the winners. Often, they have a celebrity making the presentation. A sponsor may be an individual school or its alumni association, a school board, an education media organization, a corporation associated with education. Whatever the situation, a certificate describing the award is presented, and an applicable certificate design is required.
Who better to design that certificate than a professional? All the rules that apply to graphic design apply to the graphic design of an award certificate. The various elements must reflect the occasion. In the case of award certificates for teachers, they must reflect the honor involved in winning the award. They should communicate a certain amount of formality, and respect for the recipient.
At the same time, the certificate must also convey the position of the sponsor(s). Underwriting the cost of an award and award ceremony is a public relations exercise for the organization. The design elements need to reflect something its corporate identity.
A trained designer knows which typefaces he/she must choose from, the style in terms of color, background, border and decorative elements, and how to set the tone to create a memory for the recipient. This last is the most important.

Certificates today are no longer a major expense because a wise course of action is to use a template. The actual designing has been done for you – the combining of color, typeface, style and decorative elements are ready for you to add the specific information, i.e. who is presenting the award and who is receiving it, the date and the signature(s) representing the presenter.
Not all certificate design templates are created equal. As with all our certificate design templates, our “Best Award Certificates for Teachers” are designed to graphically convey the importance of the occasion. They are Microsoft Word files to allow you to easily add the specifics of your award.
One thing to remember, ‘touch and feel’ is also a design element that a professional normally takes into consideration but, in the case of template designs, this is for you to determine. Print your award certificate of the best paper you have access to. Remember, it’s part of creating a treasured memory for the best teacher.
