CAMWS TEACHING AWARDS

CAMWS Awards for Excellence in Teaching

CAMWS offers two awards for excellence in teaching. Kraft Award for Excellence in Secondary School Teaching recognizes outstanding teachers of Latin in public or private schools (middle schools included). The CAMWS Award for Excellence in College Teaching recognizes outstanding teachers of the Classics in college or university. Both full- and part-time teachers (who teach at least half-time with a minimum of five years teaching experience) are eligible for either award. All nominees must be current CAMWS members. Nominees for the Kraft Award must be high school or middle school teachers at the time of application, and nominees for the CAMWS Award must teach at the collegiate level at the time of application.  No nominee may previously have won a teaching award from CAMWS.

These awards are made annually. The recipients are announced at the annual CAMWS meeting and each receives an award of $500. Honorees are encouraged to accept their awards in person at this meeting. 

The nomination deadline is November 15th. The deadline for receipt of all application materials is December 20th.
