VFW TEACHER OF THE YEAR

Each year three exceptional teachers are recognized by the Veterans of Foreign Wars (VFW) for their outstanding commitment to teach Americanism and patriotism to their students. The VFW annually recognizes the nation’s top classroom elementary, junior high and high school teachers who teach citizenship education topics—at least half of the school day in a classroom environment—and promote America’s history, traditions and institutions effectively.

 

The VFW’s National Citizenship Education Teacher Awards (Teacher of the Year) include the following items:

• A $1,000 award to the top K-5, 6-8 and 9-12 grade teachers for professional development expenses.
• A $1,000 award for each winning teacher’s school.
• Plaques for both the winning teacher and school.
• An all-expenses-paid trip to attend a VFW conference and receive their award.
