Medal of Honor Excellence in Character Education Award

The Medal of Honor Excellence in Character Education Award recognizes an elementary, middle school, and high school educator each year for excellence in teaching the Medal of Honor Character Development Program (CDP). Each winner will receive a $5,000 prize and a trip for two to the awards ceremony. The CDP trains educators across the country to teach the values embodied in the Medal to their students. The Excellence in Character Education Award honors teachers who inspire their students to live by the values of the Medal: courage and sacrifice, commitment and integrity, citizenship and patriotism.
