News Briefs: Writers Theatre to continue streaming shows; New Trier seeks nominations for alumni awards

Nominations for New Trier’s Alumni Achievement Awards accepted through April 9

Nominations are now open for the 2022 New Trier High School Alumni Achievement Awards.

Nominees may range from well-known alumni to unsung heroes, according to a press release from the school.

Due to COVID-19 restrictions, New Trier and the New Trier Educational Foundation were forced to postpone plans to honor a new class of alumni honorees in 2021. The selection committee has kept all the nominations for the Class of 2021 on file, the release says, so any nominations submitted last year will be considered during the 2022 selection process. There is no need to resubmit a previous nomination. New nominations are being accepted now.

The nomination deadline is 5 p.m. April 9. Anyone may nominate a graduate through the school’s easy online form found here.

New Trier launched the recognition program during the 2010-2011 school year and has inducted 61 honorees, the release says. For more information and a list of past honorees, visit the New Trier alumni website.
