Awards to USA teachers of kindergarten through 12th grade for their commitment to enhancing students' knowledge 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.

The 2021 award will be awarded only in the humanities category and the 2022 award is planned to focus on Japanese language.

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. Applicants for the Japanese language category must have excellent command of the Japanese language and may be contacted by members of the selection committee to verify this.
