This award is given to a Canadian educator currently working in a K-12 classroom who sparks students’ desire to learn, investigate and explore geography in all its breadth and complexity. The award recipient also receives $1,000 in recognition of their hard work, courtesy of the Phyllis Arnold Endowment Fund.
