The Beveridge Family Teaching Prize (K-12)
Established in 1995, this prize honors the Beveridge family’s longstanding commitment to the AHA and K-12 teaching. Friends and family members endowed this award to recognize excellence and innovation in elementary, middle school, and secondary history teaching, including career contributions and specific initiatives. The prize will be awarded on a two-year cycle rotation: in even-numbered years, to a group; in odd-numbered years, to an individual.
The next prize will be awarded to an individual, who can be recognized either for excellence in teaching or for an innovative initiative applicable to the entire field.
Each letter of nomination must include the name and address of an individual in the group that can be contacted. After receipt of this nomination letter, this individual will be contacted and asked to submit the following: vita (no more than 3 pages) of the primary participants, an essay of no more than five pages in length describing the contribution or product, discussing the achievement or innovation in approach and development, and summarizing the historical scholarship utilized. Up to ten pages of appropriate supporting materials can be included (i.e. letters of support and course materials, excerpts from a text book, or other evidence of contribution).
The prize carries a cash award plus travel expenses to the AHA annual meeting in January 2014 at which it is awarded.
Only the letter(s) of nomination should be emailed to firstname.lastname@example.org. Please be sure to include "Beveridge Family Teaching Prize Nomination" in the subject line.
The deadline for nominations is May 31, 2013.
