Beveridge Family Teaching Prize

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.

The 2019 prize will be awarded to an individual, which can be recognized either for excellence in teaching or for an innovative initiative applicable to the entire field.
