The Geography Teacher - Best Content Award

The Geography Teacher provides a forum for educators and scholars to present innovative teaching strategies and essential content for K-12 geography, AP Human Geography, introductory college geography, and preservice methods classrooms and courses.  It is also a forum for discussion of state, national, and international trends in geography education.

The National Council for Geographic Education recognizes articles from The Geography Teacher that have significantly helped in the teaching of geography to K-12 students.

Articles must be from the previous year's volume of issues to be considered. Only one award is given per year for the best overall article. NCGE members are encouraged to forward their suggestions to NCGE at

When submitting a suggestion, please place "The Geography Teacher Award Recommendation" in the subject line header.

The author(s) of the winning article will receive a plaque at the National Conference on Geography Education.
