History Teacher of Year nominations open to K-6 teachers


Nominations are open for the 2015 Kentucky History Teacher of the Year award, which is open to teachers in grades K-6. The award alternates between elementary and middle school or high school teachers.

Any full-time teacher who teaches American history (including state or local history) is eligible for consideration. American history may be taught as an individual subject or through social studies, reading, language arts and other subjects. Nominees must have at least three years of classroom teaching experience and must be planning to teach for at least one year following the award year.

Nominations can be made by a student, parent, colleague, principal or other administrator familiar with the teacher’s work. A teacher can be nominated at any point during the year but must be nominated by Feb. 1 for the current year’s award. Self-nominations are not accepted.
