Nominate an educator for the VFW Citizenship Education Teacher Award

Founded in 1899, the Veterans of Foreign Wars supports the education of America’s youth.

VFW and its auxiliary have developed a program dedicated to helping America’s educators. VFW Citizen Education programs stimulate interest in America’s history, traditions, Americanism, civic responsibility, flag etiquette and patriotism.

VFW wants to identify and recognize America’s best educators who instill a sense of national pride in students. Cash awards, commemorative plaques and an all-expense paid trip to the VFW National Convention for three worthy teachers.

VFW Posts throughout the United States annually recognize the nation’s top classroom elementary, junior high and high school teachers who teach citizenship education topics regularly and promote America’s history and traditions effectively. Based on the nominees submitted, the VFW local chapters, called Posts will recognize one outstanding teacher in grades K-5, 6-8 and 9-12. Posts then submit winners’ names and required documentation to their district-level judging who will forward their winners to Department (or state) level Department winners then forwards the names of its winners to VFW National Headquarters for consideration in the national awards contest.

All current classroom teachers (teaching at least half of the school day in a classroom environment) in grades K-12 are eligible. Anyone can nominate a deserving educator for this award. A commemorative plaque suitable for display of the recipient will be awarded to the school following the judging. 

If you wish to submit someone for this award please go to our website VFW8466.org under “PROGRAMS” and look for Teacher of the Year. A form will be available for submitting an application. Nominations must be submitted to Wake Forest Memorial Post 8466, PO Box 1162, Wake Forest, NC 27588-1162 by October 31, 2020.

Judging occurs November 1-15.
