Apply Now for JMC’s 2024 Teaching Excellence Award

Recognizing exceptional teaching of America’s founding principles and history


The Jack Miller Center is now accepting applications for our fourth annual Teaching Excellence Award. The award recognizes exceptional teaching in civic education at both the college and K-12 levels.

We believe that your work as an educator creates engaged and thoughtful citizens. Through your wisdom, passion, and stewardship, the students of our nation will continue to grow as civic-minded thinkers. Civic learning depends on cultivating young minds through stories of hope, inspiration, and success. This is an opportunity to tell us how you engage students in the story of America through primary documents, new courses, and/or extracurricular activities.

We wish to recognize your efforts in and out of the classroom to inspire and educate your students in their roles as citizens of our republic. Applicants may apply on their own behalf or nominate others.

Notice: The winner of the Teaching Excellence Award will be featured in JMC communications.
