They recognise the importance of education as the foundation for a good quality of life and future success.
There are 11 award categories for teachers, head teachers, support staff, teams, governors and trusts that have gone the extra mile in sharing their effort, enthusiasm and talent.
Parents, pupils, colleagues, providers, partners and all involved with education in Thurrock were invited to make a nomination.
