Each year, Humanities Texas presents fifteen awards recognizing and encouraging excellence in teaching the humanities in Texas schools. In 2016, over seven hundred teachers across the state were nominated for Humanities Texas Outstanding Teaching Awards. We are pleased to announce this year’s award recipients!
During the 2016–17 school year, each winning teacher will receive $5,000 and an additional $500 for his or her school to purchase humanities-based instructional materials.
