Nominations Sought for Wyoming History Teacher of the Year

April 18, 2008 — The search is on for the top history teacher in Wyoming.

Sherry Tavegie, project director of the Wyoming Geographic Alliance at the University of Wyoming, says Preserve America and the Gilder Lehrman Institute of American History will honor outstanding educators who have at least three years of classroom experience in teaching American history in middle or high school. Nomination forms are due May 16.

Winners will be selected based on their commitment to teaching American history and evidence of creativity and imagination in the classroom, Tavegie says.

Principals, school directors and department or division heads can nominate candidates. For nomination packets and other information, call Tavegie at (307) 766-3213, or e-mail

The History Teacher of the Year Award promotes and celebrates the teaching of American history in classrooms across the United States. It honors one exceptional teacher of American history from each state and U.S. territory.

The Wyoming winner will receive a $1,000 honorarium and will be in the running for the National History Teacher of the Year award to be selected this fall. His or her school library will receive a core archive of history books and materials.
