Greetings educators,

Please consider sharing the following with colleagues and help spread the word about this incredible opportunity to become a nationally recognized educator and win a free five-day trip to The Henry Ford in Dearborn, Michigan:

The fourth year of The Henry Ford’s Innovation Nation Teacher Innovator Awards has launched! The Henry Ford and Litton Entertainment are looking for teachers who demonstrate the habits of an innovator. Teachers who inspire their students to challenge the rules and take risks, who demonstrate how to be collaborative and empathetic, and teach the value of staying curious and learning from failure.

Twenty teachers in total will receive prizes, with the top ten grand prize winners receiving a week-long “Innovation Immersion Experience” at The Henry Ford in Dearborn, Michigan. Winners will be announced in June. Please listen to how this experience affected two of our first-year winners.

The awards were created to accompany the national television show, The Henry Ford’s Innovation Nation which airs on CBS Saturday mornings. The TV show is hosted by CBS News correspondent Mo Rocca and provides a weekly celebration of the inventor’s spirit, telling fascinating stories of historic innovators of the past and forward-thinking visionaries of today.
