International Educator of the Year


Award Information

In working directly with middle school, high schools and universities, 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 International Educator of the Year Award will provide to the winner a year’s membership to the Council and a $500 award.


Who is eligible for this award?

The individual being nominated for the IEY 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.

What are the benefits associated with this award?

The IEY Award winner will receive a year’s membership to the Council, a $500 award, and a trip to the World Affairs Councils of America Conference in Washington, D.C. in the fall (includes flight, accommodations and conference fees).
