The Society for Classical Studies has extended the deadline for Precollegiate Teaching Award Nominations to Friday, November 7, 2014. Instructions for submitting nominations appear here.
The Joint Committee on the Classics in American Education invites nominations for the 2014 SCS Awards for Excellence in Teaching at the Precollegiate Level. Thanks to a very generous gift to the Society’s Gatekeeper to Gateway Campaign for the Future of Classics from Daniel and Joanna Rose, the amounts to be awarded have been increased substantially. 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 SCS Annual Meeting in New Orleans, LA in January 2015 and the ACL Institute in June 2015, 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 SCS is not required. Nominations may be made by a colleague, administrator, or former student, who is thoroughly familiar with the teacher’s work
