The application does not take long, and the reward is definitely worth it—$2,000 from CEA, plus an all-expense-paid trip to the NEA Foundation’s Annual Salute to Excellence in Education Gala in Washington D.C.
We are looking for candidates who are creative, student-focused, culturally responsive, dedicated to life-long learning, and strong advocates for public education.
The individual selected as the John McCormack Award winner also becomes CEA’s nominee for two additional prestigious awards: NEA’s Horace Mann Award and the NEA/NFIE Award. Five individuals will receive a Horace Mann Award and a prize of $10,000 each, and one person will be selected for the NEA/NFIE Award with a grand prize of $25,000.
Completed applications must be sent to the office of the CEA President postmarked no later than February 10, 2017.
