Awards to USA teachers in kindergarten through 12th grade for commitment to advancing understanding and relations between Japan and America.

There are two award categories, one in the humanities and one in Japanese language. The 2020 award will be awarded only in the Japanese language category and the 2021 award is planned to focus on humanities.

Candidates must demonstrate sustained commitment to improving mutual understanding between Americans and Japanese, and must have made a significant contribution to enhancing students’ knowledge of Japan. Applicants for the Japanese language category must have excellent command of the Japanese language and may be contacted by members of the selection committee to verify this.
