Don Romesburg Prize

We are pleased to announce a new CLGBTH prize, the Don Romesburg Prize for outstanding K-12 curriculum in LGBT history. Don is a former co-chair of the CLGBTH and the lead author of the groundbreaking report, Making the Framework FAIR: California’s History-Social Science Framework Proposed LGBT Revisions Related to the FAIR Education Act, which he wrote about for Perspectives in 2016. We are thrilled to honor and to extend his work to bring intersectional and research-driven LGBT history content to K-12 students. The prize will be awarded for the first time in 2018 (announced at AHA 2019) and will be awarded every other year. It will be open to K-12 educators in all content areas and educational institutions.  We will share the winning curriculum on our website and through our networks with the hope of encouraging teachers around the nation to adapt the content to meet their own objectives, standards, and student needs. Please watch for the call for submissions in summer 2018 with a submission deadline of October 1, 2018.
