Is the next History Teacher of the Year in your district?

The History Teacher of the Year Award, one of the Governor’s Awards for History, honors excellence in teaching history to elementary through high school students.

Nominees can be elementary or secondary teachers of history or social studies in public or private schools. They must be teaching at least half-time during a school year and have a minimum of three years teaching experience in their field or the history field.

Students, parents, colleagues, administrators, or anyone familiar with the teacher's work may nominate a teacher. Contact Jeff Mammenga, South Dakota State Historical Society, at 605-773-6000 for a nomination form. Mammenga will send application materials to the nominee. Applications are due April 24.

The recipient will be presented with the award Saturday, May 30, during the South Dakota State Historical Society Annual History Conference. His or her name will also be listed on the Governor's Awards for History display in the Cultural Heritage Center in Pierre.
