The NASDAQ National Teaching Awards are designed to advance economic literacy in schools nationwide by recognizing middle and high school teachers who are helping students make sound, informed decisions and function well in the economy. This competition is open to all teachers of students in grades six to 12 who incorporate economic education into the classroom in any subject area. One national grand-prize winner will receive $25,000 (which includes his or her $10,000 regional award), five regional winners each will receive $10,000, and 20 regional semifinalists will receive $1,000 each. Each of the five regional winners also will receive an all-expenses-paid trip to New York City with a guest to accept the NASDAQ National Teaching Award for Teachers in the year following the contest.
