Apply for CEA Award Honoring Excellence in Teaching
The application will not take long, and the reward is definitely worth it—$2,000 from the CEA, plus an all-expenses paid trip to the NEA Foundation’s Annual Salute to Excellence in Education Gala in Washington D.C. We are looking for candidates who are creative, student-focused, culturally responsive, dedicated to life-long learning, and strong advocates for public education.
The individual selected to be the John McCormack Award winner also becomes the CEA’s nominee for two additional prestigious awards: The Horace Mann Award and the NEA/NFIE Award. Five individuals will receive a Horace Mann Award and a prize of $10,000 each, and one person will be selected for the NEA/NFIE Award with a grand prize of $25,000.
Nominations and completed paperwork are due by February 15, 2016.
