Toyota Family Teacher of the Year nominations open


The National Center for Families Learning (NCFL) is accepting nominations through Dec. 31 for the 2015 Toyota Family Teacher of the Year Award, which will award $20,000 to an exemplary teacher engaging families in education.

Educators working with families through schools, libraries and other community-based organizations are eligible for the award. The winner’s school or program will receive the $20,000 prize to further efforts to engage families in learning together, and the second-prize winner will receive a $2,500 prize.

Both winners will be announced in March at the NCFL’s 2015 Families Learning Summit in Houston, and the grand prize winner will deliver a speech to summit attendees.
