Nominate outstanding educators for Citizenship Education awards
“Education breeds confidence. Confidence breeds hope. Hope breeds peace.” – Confucius
Many educators have gone above and beyond to teach the next generation about civics – giving students the confidence to engage in their democracy. But some educators stand out among the rest – and these are the ones we want to hear about! Nominate an exemplary educator for The Missouri Bar’s E.A. Richter and Dr. Warren H. Solomon Civic Virtue awards.
The E. A Richter Award recognizes remarkable contributions by Missouri teachers, administrators, and schools to citizenship education efforts in the state. Past winners include secondary and elementary teachers; college professors; and school civics, citizenship, government, or law programs. The Missouri Bar Advisory Committee for Citizenship Education established the award in honor of E.A. “Wally” Richter, long-time Missouri Bar Law-Related Education Department director.
