Teach Cyber Teacher of the Year Awards

One of our core values is supporting educators who incorporate multiple means of representation, expression, and engagement so all students can access and learn cybersecurity. If you or a teacher you know should be recognized for their efforts in cybersecurity please nominate them for one of the Teach Cyber Teacher of the Year awards.
Passport to Cybersecurity Award
This award recognizes teachers who have dedicated significant time and effort to prepare for, recruit, and implement a cybersecurity class at their school. Their efforts have resulted in students' introduction to cybersecurity and learning the importance of data care.
Pathways to Cybersecurity Award
This award recognizes teachers who (including teaching a cybersecurity course and emphasizing data care) developed cybersecurity programs, hosted clubs, or coached competitions. Their efforts have given students multiple means to enter or advance along a cybersecurity path.
Platform for Cybersecurity Award
