Smart/Maher VFW National Citizenship Education Teacher Award
Each year, the Veterans of Foreign Wars selects elementary, middle and high school teachers to participate in the Smart/Maher National Citizenship Education Teacher program. Effective this year, VFW Post Teacher Award Chairman may submit a candidate to their Department Headquarters by January 1 in each category. The Department may select a single candidate for each of the three awards and submit those to VFW National Headquarters by February 1. VFW's Department Teacher winners that are received at National Headquarters will receive a VFW National citation for both the winning teacher and their school in each grade category.
