In 2016, Humanities Texas will present a total of fifteen awards to exceptional Texas K–12 humanities teachers in three different categories:

  • Outstanding Teaching of the Humanities Award
    (12 recipients). This award recognizes exemplary contributions of teachers in Texas elementary, middle, and high schools.

  • Linden Heck Howell Outstanding Teaching of Texas History Award (1 recipient). This award was established in memory of Ms. Howell, former chair of the Humanities Texas Board of Directors, as a lasting tribute to her service to the organization and her commitment to the study of Texas history.

  • Award for Outstanding Early-Career Teaching
    (2 recipients). This award recognizes exemplary contributions of early-career humanities teachers in Texas who have completed three or fewer years of teaching.

All award winners will receive a $5,000 prize, with an additional $500 for their schools to purchase humanities-based instructional materials.

For more information on the awards, including eligibility and a list of past recipients, please visit the Teaching Awards section of our website or email ota@humanitiestexas.org.
