COLUMBUS, Ohio (November 30th, 2022) – Leading global education company McGraw Hill announced today the establishment of a new awards program that will recognize educators from PreK-12, higher education and post-graduate institutions for innovative and inventive teaching that helps learners succeed.

The McGraw Hill Pathfinder Awards will honor three educators in 2023, one from each category of PreK-12, higher education and post-graduate, with each winner receiving a $5,000 cash prize. Nominations are being accepted now!

The McGraw Hill Pathfinder Awards seek to identify educators who are:

  • Pioneers in education who are breaking new ground in their approach to teaching
  • Outstanding educators who think outside the box to help students succeed
  • Individuals whose contributions have achieved positive learning outcomes for their students

Educators may nominate themselves or can be nominated by another educator, administrator, student, family or friend. They are not required to be a McGraw Hill customer. Entrants are asked to provide answers to just a few short questions and can also submit an optional video or photo to accompany the application. Judging, which will begin in late February 2023, will be independent.

“Everything we do at McGraw Hill is designed to support educators and learners in new and inventive ways, and we’re honored to celebrate educators who are moving us forward,” said CEO Simon Allen. “We hope our McGraw Hill Pathfinder Awards inspire others to envision what’s possible by transforming teaching and learning.”

The deadline for nominations for this year’s program is February 15, 2023 at 11:59 p.m. ET with winners to be announced in Spring 2023.
