You probably know many outstanding teachers who would qualify for the John McCormack CEA Award for Teaching Excellence. Here’s your chance to nominate one of them—or you can even nominate yourself!
The John McCormack Award recognizes and promotes excellence in teaching and service to the profession. Competition for the award is open to all CEA members with a minimum of three years teaching experience.
The application process has been streamlined and does not take long, and the reward is definitely worth it—$2,000 from CEA, plus an all-expenses paid trip to the NEA Foundation’s Annual Salute to Excellence in Education Gala in Washington, D.C.
The McCormack winner also becomes CEA’s nominee for two additional prestigious awards: The Horace Mann Award and the NEA Member Benefits Award. From the finalists across the country five will be selected to receive a Horace Mann Award and a prize of $10,000 each, and one person will be selected for the NEA Member Benefits Award for Teaching Excellence with a grand prize of $25,000.
The application deadline for this award is January 19, 2024.
