Teacher Prep is excited to announce the 2024 Princeton Prize for Distinguished Secondary School Teaching call for nominations is now open!
Each year since 1959, Princeton University has honored at its Commencement four outstanding New Jersey teachers from public and independent schools for their contributions to the lives of the state’s secondary school students and to their school communities. Through the generosity of an anonymous alumnus, each of the Princeton Prize for Distinguished Secondary School Teaching (DSSTA) winners receives $5,000, and each winner’s school receives an additional $3,000 for the purchase of library books. Nominations are due December 8, 2023.
Please visit the dedicated webpage for eligibility and nomination information.
