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 at the 2019 meeting of the AHA, and will be awarded in consecutive odd-numbered years, covering the previous two years. 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.
Submissions to the inaugural Don Romesburg Prize are due October 1, 2018. For details on how to apply, please see Current Prize Calls.
