Teaching Awards

Recognizing Outstanding Educators

Every day, there are teachers around the state who bring economics and personal finance to life for their students. Their lessons engage students and help them to apply their learning to their daily lives. We want to recognize and honor those educators who make a difference in the lives of their students through excellence in economic and personal finance education.

Each year MCEE honors Minnesota educators who effectively teach economic and personal finance principles using innovative, diverse, and creative teaching practices. The awards honor teachers who incorporate exemplary teaching techniques that improve the economic understanding of their students, both in and out of the classroom. To show our appreciation of the hard work and effort that went into an extraordinary year, MCEE’s annual teaching awards will highlight teachers who excelled at adapting economic or personal finance lessons for distance learning.
