An award to recognize the efforts of educators and their impact on students.
We believe your work in the classroom and with your students is critically important for America’s future. Our self-governing nation is dependent upon an informed and engaged citizenry if we are to further our constitutional democracy.
We believe that knowledge of America’s institutional structures is only the beginning of civic learning. Every generation of citizens needs to be introduced to the country’s founding documents, the ideas behind them, and how our history connects to the issues of today.
We know that the results of your efforts are difficult to quantify. We wish to recognize your work to engage, educate, and inspire your students, and to foster civil discourse and critical thinking.
The Jack Miller Center is giving out a teaching award for Excellence in Civic Education with a $1,000 prize to one Florida teacher.
If you are interested in being considered, please submit your story of how you have engaged your students in learning about America and their roles as citizens. We are looking for enthusiasm in teaching and innovative approaches.
We would like to hear about your proudest moments observing your students grasping what you’ve taught them—both inside the classroom and out.
The application deadline is July 1, 2021.
Winner will receive a $1,000 prize and will be featured in JMC print and online media publications.
