Apply Now for $2,000 CEA Award Recognizing Teaching Excellence

mccormack-awardYou probably know many outstanding teachers who might qualify for the John McCormack CEA Award for Teaching Excellence. Here’s your chance to nominate one of them—or you can even nominate yourself!

The application does not take long, and the reward is definitely worth it—$2,000 from CEA, plus an all-expense-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 as the John McCormack Award winner also becomes CEA’s nominee for two additional prestigious awards: NEA’s 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.

Completed applications must be sent to the office of the CEA President postmarked no later than February 10, 2017.
