PRESS RELEASE - The Colleton County VFW in conjunction with Department of South Carolina and the VFW National Organization would like to offer the Smart/Maher VFW National Citizenship Education Teacher Award for Elementary, Middle, and High School Teachers.
This award is for teachers who promote civic responsibility, flag etiquette and patriotism. Do you know a teacher who plans field trips to city hall or organizes community volunteer projects, maybe you know an instructor who invites veterans into the classroom to discuss their military experiences. Perhaps you are familiar with a teacher who fosters the development of democratic values and beliefs through special projects, if so honor him or her with a nomination today.
All current certified/licensed teachers in grades K-12 are eligible. Nominations can be submitted by themselves, fellow teachers, supervisors, family members or other interested individuals.
All nominees should provide a one-page resume as a minimum or up to five pages as a maximum of documentation of their teaching experience (ie references, news articles, etc) and a head and shoulder photo of themselves.
