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

You 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-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 CEA’s nominee for two additional prestigious awards: The Horace Mann Award and the NEA/NFIE Award. Out of all nominees from around the U.S., 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.
