Facing History and Ourselves celebrates the amazing educators who go above and beyond the call of duty—shaping responsible global citizens and confronting injustice and hatred head on. The Facing History Together Teacher Recognition Contest is a chance for the community to honor those outstanding educators who have made an impact on their lives.
Who inspired you to stand up and speak out against hatred and injustice? Who taught you to think differently about the world we live in and your role in it?
Nominated educators are eligible for a classroom grant of $5,000. Check back next week to learn about the semi-finalists and vote for the winner.
This award is made possible through the Planethood Foundation, in recognition of Ben Ferencz, esteemed Nuremberg Tribunal prosecutor and advocate for the rule of law in the establishment of world peace.
Facing History Together is a community for anyone whose life has been touched by Facing History and Ourselves, but especially for those interested in exploring and sharing all possible ways to be an Upstander—someone who will stand up in the face of injustice, not stand by.
