2023 IEY winner, Amanda Ledwon, received award from WACDFW Chair, Dave Meyer

In working directly with middle school and high schools, the World Affairs Council of Dallas/Fort Worth has encountered numerous educators devoted to enriching their students’ knowledge of world affairs and expanding international learning opportunities for their students. These teachers and administrators demonstrate leadership by going above and beyond their normal responsibilities.

Just as these teachers feel it is important to help their students develop a better understanding of the world, we at the Council feel it is equally important to recognize the efforts of these dedicated individuals.

The individual being nominated for this award must be a full-time 6-12 teacher or administrator who resides in the Dallas/Fort Worth Metroplex and has worked with WACDFW in some capacity over their career. The nominee should have a proven track record of incorporating international resources and perspectives into their work as an educator to develop global competence skills in students.

The International Educator of the Year will receive a $500 award, a trip to the World Affairs Councils of America Conference in Washington, D.C. in the fall (includes flight and conference fees) and a one-year membership to the World Affairs Council of Dallas/Fort Worth. Winner will be announced at the Council’s annual International Educator of the Year luncheon. More information here.

 

Nominations are open from October 9 – November 13, 2023.
