Announcing the 2nd Annual Educator of the Year Award

Pop Culture Classroom is excited to announce that we are now accepting nominations for the 2nd annual Pop Culture Educator of the Year Award!

At PCC, we believe that pop culture is an incredible educational tool. The Pop Culture Educator of the Year Award is our way of recognizing innovative educators who are using pop culture as a way to engage students, inspire a lifelong love of learning, encourage diversity, and increase literacy in their schools and local communities.

Do you know an educator who fits this description? Be sure to nominate them today! An award will be given out for each of the following four categories:

  • Elementary
  • Middle School
  • High School
  • Post-secondary Education (college/university)

All K-12 and higher education educators (including, but not limited to, teachers, librarians, administrators and informal education practitioners) are eligible for the award. Parents, students, administrators, and fellow educators may submit applications, and one educator can receive multiple nominations. You can even nominate yourself!

In addition to one of PCC’s own pop culture-based curricula, each award-winner will receive two 3-day passes to Denver Comic Con 2018 (June 30- July 2, 2018), a DCC’18 prize package, and even a special spotlight on PCC’s website. One Honorable Mention from each category will also be chosen and featured on our website.

We look forward to hearing about the wonderful educators in your lives and the great work they’re doing to support students using pop culture!
