Shelby County Historical Commission: Top Teacher Award
I am pleased to announce a new award for West Tennessee history teachers. Sponsored by the Shelby County Historical Commission, the award honors the teacher who has done the most to advance history education in the current academic year. The winner will be selected by a committee composed of the West Tennessee History Day district coordinator, a representative from the Shelby County Historical commission, and one other faculty member from the Department of History at the University of Memphis.
Eligibility will be restricted to teachers whose primary duty is history instruction at the middle and high school level.
Nominations should take the form of a one-page summary of the nominee’s qualifications for the award, addressing specifically the ways in which she or he has advanced the study of history in his or her school/district. Each nomination must be accompanied by two letters of support. If you are nominating yourself, please arrange for letters of support to be submitted separately from the nomination letter. All three documents should be mailed to the West Tennessee History Day district coordinator: Susan O’Donovan, Department of History, The University of Memphis, Memphis TN 38152. Nominations and support letters may also be submitted electronically to firstname.lastname@example.org.
The deadline for nomination is TBA for 2015. The winner will be announced at the West Tennessee History Day contest.
