 District 202 community members are invited and encouraged to nominate a District 202 staff or community member for the 2024 CAPE Community Award.

 The CAPE Community Award honors individuals for outstanding overall commitment to District 202 schools and service to the broader District 202 community. The award was first given in 1983.

 CAPE is District 202’s committee for the Coordination of Administration and Parent groups for Educational Efficiency. It comprises parents and district administrators representing all District 202 school and district-level parent organizations.


 Nominations can also be made through the link posted on the front page of the District 202 website at www.psd202.org and all District 202 school websites under the News section.

The deadline for nominations is Thursday, March 14, 2024. This deadline will not be extended. Past winners cannot be nominated again. The online nomination form includes a list of past winners.

This award is different from the individual CAPE Awards given to one volunteer, one staff member,  and one teacher from each school in District 202.  This award recognizes someone who serves the entire community.

The 2024 CAPE Community Award winner will be announced and recognized at the 48th Annual CAPE Award Reception and Ceremony is scheduled for Tuesday, April 16, 2024, at Plainfield High School-Central Campus, 24120 W. Fort Beggs Drive, Plainfield.

CAPE serves as a resource to, and conduit between parent groups and district administration. CAPE has recognized parents, community members, teachers, and staff members for their commitment to students, their schools, and the community since its inception.
