The award recognizes the commitment that Libby Kingseed had to civic education, especially her support of teacher networking, experimentation, and reflection on the use of deliberation in the classroom.
This award is open to any K-12 teacher who is inspired to implement deliberation or deliberative pedagogy in the classroom and who is new to using the practices. The teacher should have a demonstrated commitment to fostering the civic development of students, though it is not necessary that they be a civics or social studies teacher. All K-12 teachers are encouraged to apply.
NIFI will begin accepting grant applications in February 2022 for the grant period beginning July 1, 2022 and ending on June 30, 2023. Grants will be in the range of $500.
