Do you know the best teacher of Canadian history and the social world? If so, apply (it could be you!) For the Governor General's History Award for Teaching Excellence.

Each year, the Canadian History Society seeks out the best Canadian history and social science teachers in the country for the Governor General's History Award for Teaching Excellence. On this occasion, six teachers receive a medal, 2,500 $ and a trip for two to Ottawa, where they are invited to the awards ceremony at Rideau Hall. Each recognized teacher's school also receives an award of 1,000 $.

The Society wishes to highlight the leadership and innovative spirit of elementary and secondary school teachers who transmit to young people their passion for the past. To do this, they can present a project, work or even a group or school project. A committee of judges will choose six recipients, based on a presentation describing the achievements and innovations of the applicants in the field of history or social science education.

For more information on the Awards and the application process, visit the site here. There is also a description of the projects of the rewarded teachers in recent years.

Proposals are collected until 1er April. For more details, you can contact Jean-Philippe Proulx (jpproulx@histoirecanada.ca).

The Canadian History Society's mandate is to popularize the history of Canada. In addition to presenting the Governor General's History Awards, she publishes the magazines Canada's History and Kayaking: Navigating Canadian History. The Company also produces educational resources. For example, in this Black History Month one can consult a educational scenario on Harriet Tubman and its contribution to the country's history.
