Commissioner's Business Recognition Awards

The Commissioner's Business Recognition Awards (CBRA) program was established in 1987 by the Florida Commissioner of Education. This program recognizes businesses from around the state of Florida that have shown the most commitment, creativity and innovation in bringing about positive change to schools and school districts.

The honorees are selected by each school district, based on the significant impact the business partnership had on the students in a particular K-12 public school or district wide. The recognition by the district and the Commissioner instills a sense of pride and accomplishment that makes businesses more likely to continue partnering with the schools in their area.

In 2015, the Commissioner's Business Recognition event was held in conjunction with the Florida Chamber Foundation's Education Summit.

This year the 2016 Commissioner's Business Recognition honorees will be recognized during the Florida Chamber Foundation's 2016 Annual Education Solutions Summit
