The Joint Committee on the Classics in American Education invites nominations for the 2011 APA Awards for Excellence in Teaching at the Precollegiate Level. Up to two winners will receive a certificate of award and a cash prize of $500. In addition, each winner’s institution will receive $200 to purchase educational resources selected by the winner. The winners will be announced at both the APA Annual Meeting in Philadelphia, PA in January 2012 and the ACL Institute in June 2012, and winners may select the meeting at which they wish to receive the award.
Eligibility is open to teachers, full- or part-time, of grades K-12 in schools in the United States and Canada who at the time of the application teach at least one class of Latin, Greek, or classics at the K-12 level. Membership in the APA is not required. Nominations may be made by a colleague, administrator, or former student, who is thoroughly familiar with the teacher's work.
September 16, 2011, is the deadline for the receipt of nominations.
