Each year, Global TeachNet recognizes K-12 educators who exhibit a commitment to bringing global education into U.S. classrooms. Teachers can nominate themselves or be nominated by others. Qualified applicants include Returned Peace Corps Volunteers (RPCVs) and non-RPCVs whose global education efforts in the classroom span at least one academic year. Award winners receive $500 and national recognition. Global TeachNet also recognizes exemplary K-12 educators for their efforts in promoting peace and international/intercultural understanding with a $500 award. The deadline for both programs is the same.
