Outstanding Social Studies Teacher of the Year
The North Carolina Council for the Social Studies recognizes exemplary teaching in the field of social studies. Teachers may be nominated by an individual; preferably a principal, supervisor, or fellow teacher, or a group. Self-nominations are also accepted. The 2017 Social Studies Teacher of the Year Award is presented at the NCCSS Annual State Conference, March 2-3, 2017. NEW THIS YEAR! The winner of the 2017 Social Studies Teacher of the Year Award will be presented an award check for $500 at the Conference Luncheon. The winner is encouraged to share his/her expertise and experiences by presenting on a session topic of his/her choice at the 2018 Annual Conference; if the winner chooses to do so, the NCCSS will also waive the Conference registration fee in 2018.
