Economics Educator Awards


Econ Illinois recognizes teachers for incorporating economics and personal finance education into their curriculum, successfully educating students to be life-long decision makers, empowering youth to make wise decisions about school, career paths, and finances. Teachers are selected based on their participation and accomplishments, professional leadership in the field, professional goals and growth as well as student achievement or growth as evidenced by the teacher’s work. The Outstanding Economic Educator Awards provide an incentive for other teachers to excel in teaching economics and personal finance in any grade and subject matter. The OEE award-winning teachers have opportunities to deliver professional development and advocacy work in the field of economic education.

Winners are honored at the Econ Illinois American Dream Dinner in May.
