ACTFL Awards

Awards news

ACTFL’s annual awards programs, including a series of Professional Awards reflecting a robust host of categories and the National Teacher of the Year Program, celebrate and promote achievement in the language education profession across all languages and levels of instruction.

Our awards programs inspire and motivate others to strive for excellence—empowering fellow language educators, peers across academic disciplines, and our students.

Awards also generate awareness about the value of language learning and provide strong examples of outstanding efforts in language education that communities may leverage in support of local initiatives as a powerful boost to grassroots advocacy endeavors.
