Beveridge Family Teaching Prize

The 2019 submission deadline has passed. Awardees will be announced this fall.

Established in 1995, this prize honors the Beveridge family’s long-standing 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. See the list of past recipients.

The 2020 prize will be awarded to a group, which can be recognized either for excellence in teaching or for an innovative initiative applicable to the entire field.

Submission Details

Nominations should include:

  1. An award nomination form (you will be prompted to complete this form online in step 3 of the application process)
  2. A nomination letter describing the group's contribution, discussing the achievement or innovation in approach and development, and summarizing the historical scholarship utilized. 
  3. A CV
  4. Up to 10 pages of appropriate supporting materials can be included (i.e., additional letters of support, course materials, excerpts from a textbook, or other evidence of contribution)

The AHA has partnered with Interfolio to manage our nomination process. Submitting a nomination package through Interfolio is FREE for nominators.
