About the Award

Each year, The Washington Post honors exceptional men and women in the teaching profession by awarding $3,000 to an outstanding teacher selected in each of the 19 local public school systems, and one award to a teacher from a private school in the metropolitan area.

The selections are made through a nominating process and the final decision is made by each local school system. Nominees from private schools are screened by a committee of educators and community leaders through the coordinating efforts of the Council for American Private Education.

Teachers of accredited public or private schools (prekindergarten through 12th grade) are eligible to apply.

The deadline for award nominations varies.
