World Affairs Council
Nomination deadline: 5/31/2018
Each year, the World Affairs Council honors a local educator who has made exceptional contributions in broadening the global horizons of students and colleagues. The recipient of the World Educator Award is an outstanding K-12 teacher who promotes international understanding in the classroom and contributes to the development of resources so that other educators and community members are better prepared to meet a major challenge of our time. Our children’s lives will be defined by the world within and beyond our borders; a World Affairs Council World Educator is someone who works to ensure that their students’ learning is reflective of that reality.
Once a nomination is received, nominees will be asked to submit a resume and provide a minimum of one letter of support from a colleague, parent, student, or administrator. Stronger applications are typically supported by 2-3 letters of support. Applications will be reviewed by former World Educator recipients and World Affairs Council staff and board members.
The World Educator is inducted into the World Affairs Council Fellows Program free of charge, and is given the opportunity to lead a Global Classroom workshop during the academic year of their award.
Whether you are a teacher, and have a colleague who has been a leader in promoting international understanding at your school–or are a student and have a teacher who has expanded your worldview– or are a parent who is grateful for the role a teacher has played in shaping your child’s perspective–we look forward to reviewing your nominations!
To nominate a World Educator, simply send us an email with the name of your nominee, some background on their work and roles, and your reason for nominating them. Please also include their contact information so we can reach out to them for application materials.
Nominations are due by May 31st
