Nominate a stellar teacher for History Teacher of the Year

Do you know a stellar American history teacher? Consider nominating him or her to become the 2018 Montana History Teacher of the Year.  

The 2018 Montana History Teacher of the Year is open to any full-time K–12 educator who teaches American history (including state and local history) as either an individual subject or as part of other subjects, such as social studies, reading, or language arts, is eligible for the award. We understand that almost all elementary school teachers will be generalists in that they do not always teach history or their curriculum only allows them to teach some history. This should not deter individuals from nominating elementary teachers.

The Montana awardee is then considered for the National History Teacher of the Year Award,  recognizes outstanding American history teachers across the country.  Each state selects a state winner who then will be placed in competition for the National History Teacher of the Year award.  ­
  • State winners receive a $1,000 prize, an archive of classroom resources, and recognition at a ceremony within their state.
  • National winner receives a $10,000 prize presented at an award ceremony in their honor in New York City.
Nominations may be made by clicking the following link or filling out a paper application.:
Important Calendar Dates:
  • Deadline for nominations: March 31, 2018
  • Deadline for nominees to submit supporting materials: April 30, 2018
