Nominations Needed: Award for Excellence in Teaching at the Pre-collegiate Level

The Society for Classical Studies announces nominations are due September 27, 2019 for the Award for Excellence in Teaching at the Pre-collegiate Level.

Two awards are given each year. The value is $500.00 (cash), $200.00 (materials budget), and plane fare plus two nights in the conference hotel at either the SCS annual meeting (Washington D.C., Jan. 2-5, 2020) or the ACL annual meeting (Charleston South Carolina, June, 2020). The awardee may choose. Candidates remain eligible for three years in total and the numbers submitted are relatively small, so this is an award with decent odds.

Please consider nominating a colleague or nudge a supervisor to nominate yourself!
