Each year, Humanities Texas presents awards recognizing and encouraging excellence in teaching the humanities in Texas schools. We hope you have enjoyed getting to know the 2020 winners, whom we highlighted in our e-newsletter over the past several months.
Today, we are pleased to announce the recipients of the 2021 Outstanding Teaching Awards. Over six hundred teachers from across the state were nominated for this year's awards. During the 2021–22 school year, each winning teacher will receive $5,000 and an additional $1,000 for their school to purchase humanities-based instructional materials.
Stay tuned for upcoming features on the 2021 recipients!
