Each year, Humanities Texas presents fifteen awards recognizing and encouraging excellence in teaching the humanities in Texas schools. In 2015, over 450 teachers across the state were nominated for the Humanities Texas Outstanding Teaching Awards. We are pleased to announce this year’s award recipients!
During the 2015–16 school year, each winning teacher will receive $5,000 and an additional $500 for his or her school to purchase humanities-based instructional materials.
