The Distinguished Teaching Award

The Distinguished Teaching Award was established in 1974 to honor those teachers who are largely responsible for generating the love for geography among so many CGS. Many of the recipients this award have been primary and secondary school educators.

This award is presented at the annual spring conferences, with two or more distinguished K-12 educators frequently honored..
