Denver Comic Con and Pop Culture Classroom announce a new award called Pop Culture Educator of the Year. Staying true to Pop Culture Classroom’s mission, this organization is always seeking to spark creativity and greatness. DCC knows what an important opportunity pop culture can be in inspiring and educating our youth, and they will be honoring a teacher this year. According to Denver Comic Con, they are looking for nominations for an educator who uses “pop culture to engage students, inspire the lifelong love of learning, encourage diversity, and increase literacy in their schools and local communities.” Nominations are coming in quickly so be sure to show that love and support for that teacher who truly makes a difference by using pop culture as an inspiring educational experience.
Educators eligible to receive this award are listed on Pop Culture Classroom's website as "K-12 and higher education (college/university) educators, and one teacher can receive multiple nominations." An award will be given out in each of the following categories. Submit that nomination by using the following link.
Denver Comic Con lists the "Grand Prize winner in each category will receive two 3-day passes to Denver Comic Con 2017, free access to one Pop Culture Curriculum, a special DCC 2017 prize package, and a spotlight on the website."
