The Gilder Lehrman Institute of American History, Preserve America and the History Channel annually recognize outstanding American history teachers at the state and national levels. Nominees may be any full-time educators of grades K-12 who teach American history (as a separate subject or through social studies, language arts and other subjects). State winners receive a $1,000 prize and an archive of classroom resources. One national winner receives a $10,000 prize.
The 2015 award will honor K-6 teachers. Nominations are due by Feb. 1. For more details and to complete a short nomination form, visit the History Teacher of the Year pages of the Gilder Lehrman Institute’s website.
