Bright Lights Awards

Bright Light Awards

The Creswell Education Foundation intends to celebrate the bright futures of Creswell students as well as pay tribute to some of our outstanding educators. The “Bright Light” Award allows the Foundation and the community to acknowledge a few of the students who have utilized their education to launch them into their next phase of life.  This also gives these students an opportunity to recognize an educator- teacher, custodian, counselor- anyone who has helped them reach their highest potential while attending Creswell schools.


First, anyone- teachers, counselors, community volunteers, parents, administrators and others with knowledge of student efforts- nominate outstanding seniors. Two- four seniors are selected by Foundation board members, or their designees, based on the criteria below. The selected students will be presented with the Bright Light Award at an end-of-school event (date and event to be determined).
