State, National, and International Awards for Educators

Teachers across the nation are starting to demand the recognition they deserve. With a movement screaming for fair pay in West Virginia and echoing out as far as Arizona, it’s clear that all eyes are on the teachers. And rightly so. Teachers put in far more hours than your average 9-5 employee. They often wake before the sun comes up and leave work after it has gone down. Teachers are often responsible for the education, safety, and stability of dozens of children, teens, and young adults. They even work on the weekends to finish off grading, student reports, and other administrative duties. With pay so low, many teachers opt out of their Summers off to work a Summer job. It seems as though teachers are hard at it year round. Though, our understanding of this demanding profession is not new, it’s just taken a while for things to change systematically. In fact, there are thousands of people across the nation who appreciate teachers. Millions even. From fellow teachers to the students they have impacted, Americans for generations attribute their achievements from today to teacher. And these millions of Americans want to say “thanks.” And what better way to show this appreciation than with an award? The are literally hundreds of ways to say thanks in all 50 states, across the US, and even across the globe. A teacher wears so many hats, there are hundreds of reasons to say thanks as well. In addition to creating safe and nurturing environments, outstanding educators are experts in their field, remain up-to-date on the latest technologies, and find ways to reach all types of students. There are awards that recognize teachers who shine and are models to the community, teachers who are experts at teaching their subject, teachers who work with special needs students, and teachers who know how to give the gift of music and Art, teachers who advocate for diversity, and teachers who focus on environmental education. We surveyed some of the most famous teacher awards across the nation. We looked for awards that had some prestige and backing, as well as more down-home awards for teachers who may be overlooked. What we discovered is that this nation really does want to thank its teachers for their service. Take a look at over 200 awards available to teachers in all 50 states.
