Alfred P. Sloan Foundation Teaching Champion Awards
The Council for Economic Education recognizes excellence in economic education by honoring three outstanding educators from the New York Metropolitan area with the Alfred P. Sloan Foundation Teaching Champion Award.
This award promotes economic education at the high school level by recognizing and honoring teachers who effectively deliver this important content in and out of their classrooms and achieve results. We seek applicants who instill in students an understanding of economics and the tools to make informed and responsible decisions that they will carry with them as they grow into successful and productive adults.
