National History Teacher of the Year Award Ceremony

On October 6, Professor Henry Louis Gates, Jr., presented the 2021 National History Teacher of the Year award in a special virtual ceremony. In addition, we heard from finalists, past winners, and students about the impact of this prestigious award, and paid tribute to the important work of all teachers. A video showcasing the national winner’s extraordinary career, produced by HISTORY®, was a highlight of the program. We invite you to view a recording of the event below.
