Nominate your outstanding teacher

Do you know an outstanding Vermont teacher—one who deserves statewide recognition and a $1,000 prize?
VHC seeks an educator in grades 6 through 12 who:
inspires his or her students and encourages in them intellectual curiousity and a lifelong love of learning; possesses extraordinary knowledge, ability, and accomplishment in the teaching of language, literature, history, social studies, or other humanities fields; exhibits infectious enthusiasm for his/her subject and learning in general; and embodies a commitment to the highest standards of achievement, for him/herself and students.
The Victor R. Swenson Humanities Educator Award recognizes a Vermont educator who exemplifies excellence in the teaching of the humanities.
Nomination Guidelines:
Send a letter of nomination and a second letter of support. Both letters should clearly set forth the educator’s qualifications for the award, referencing the criteria above.
Nominate online or mail the nomination letters to the VHC office. Individuals may not nominate themselves. Current members of the VHC board and staff and members of the judging committee are not eligible to receive the award. After reviewing the nominations, the judging committee will seek additional supporting material.
The deadline for nominations has been extended to July 1. Letters of nomination are due at VHC’s office by the deadline.
Mail nominations to Vermont Humanities Council, 11 Loomis Street, Montpelier, Vt. 05602. To learn more, call Linda Wrazen at (802) 262-2626 ext. 309.
The award and $1,000 prize will be presented at VHC’s annual fall conference in November.
