Each year, The History Channel honors teachers who demonstrate an exceptional commitment to local history education and historic preservation. This year, 24 teachers who creatively integrate local history lesson plans, activities, or projects into their classroom curriculum will win $1,000 cash prizes. One teacher will receive a $5,000 cash prize and a free trip to Washington, D.C., where he or she will be recognized as the Save Our History Teacher of the Year at the Save Our History National Honors Event. Every teacher who submits an application for the SOH National Honors will receive a free DVD from The History Channel. To be eligible, teachers must use a component of the Save Our History Educator’s Manual or Monthly Lesson Plans.
