------------------------------------------------------------
The Veterans of Foreign Wars annually recognizes the nation’s top classroom elementary, junior high and high school teachers who teach citizenship education topics regularly and promote America’s history and traditions effectively. This year Joe Wagner VFW Post 7313 (http://vfw7313.org) in Pittsboro is participating in the Teacher of the Year Program.

Teachers who promote civic responsibility, flag etiquette and patriotism are prime candidates for this award. For example, do you know a teacher who plans field trips to city hall or organizes community volunteer projects? Maybe you know an instructor who invites veterans into the classroom to discuss their military experiences. Perhaps you are familiar with a teacher who fosters the development of democratic values and beliefs through special projects. If you know of such a teacher, honor him or her today with the Smart/Maher VFW National Citizenship Education Teacher Award.

The rules eligibility requirements and submission form can be found below. Anyone can make a submission and the deadline for submissions to the Post is 31 October 2017.
