Teacher Of The Year 

All Grades

Without our nation’s veterans, America wouldn't be the great nation it is today. Our youth deserve to learn about our rich history, traditions and the role of our veterans in creating and shaping America.

Each year, the Veterans of Foreign Wars selects elementary, middle, and high school teachers to participate in the Smart/Maher VFW National Citizenship Education Teacher program. 

Please review the new rules and eligibility requirements and, we should have the 2021 nomination form available shortly so you can nominate a teacher you know. Teacher nomination entries must be received to your Post by the Oct. 31 deadline.
