Teaching Award

In 2018 the Consortium of Latin American Studies Programs (CLASP) calls for nominations for its fifth annual “CLASP Teaching Award for K–12 Educators.” The award was established to recognize excellence and innovation in the teaching of Latin America and/or the Caribbean among elementary, middle, and high school teachers. CLASP proudly honors teachers who have displayed continued dedication to presenting their students with an engaging and dynamic portrait of Latin America that goes beyond the textbook.

Where possible, we are also pleased to share curriculum developed by the winners.

The 2018 call for nominations is now closed. The 2019 competition will be announced as it becomes available. For reference, we invite you to view the 2018 Call for Nominations for the K-12 Teaching Award for more details.
