Awards to USA teachers of kindergarten through 12th grade for their commitment to teaching students about Japan. The award is presented annually to K-12 teachers who excel in one of two categories: humanities and the Japanese language. Previous award recipients have had over 10 years of teaching experience and have been engaged in teaching their students about Japan for a substantial period of time.
There are two award categories, one in the humanities and one in Japanese language. The next award will be open to both categories.
Candidates must demonstrate sustained commitment to improving mutual understanding between Americans and Japanese, and must have made a significant contribution to enhancing students’ knowledge of Japan.
