Every year the American Legion Department of Indiana recognizes educators in three categories: kindergarten through 6th grade, 7th and 8th grades, and high school.
The Educator of the Year judging is based on the candidates’ career, community service, family involvement, and letters of recognition.
Each winning teacher also received a $500 grant to their school from the American Legion, Department of Indiana.
