Teacher Awards

The Center for Economic Education is committed to recognizing teacher accomplishments in, and commitments to, economic education.

Awards are divided into two categories: curriculum awards (unit or lesson) and achievement awards. Any teacher who creates and implements an innovative economics unit or lesson should submit an entry for the curriculum awards. Any teacher who has demonstrated a sustained commitment to teaching economics in the classroom over a number of years should submit an entry for achievement awards. Nominations and self-nominations are welcomed and encouraged.
