ATHE (Association for Theatre in Higher Education) and KCACTF have partnered to create the ATHE/KCACTF Prize for Innovative Teaching and a prize that goes to any graduate student displaying outstanding innovative work. These prizes will be awarded by an ATHE representative at each KCACTF region festival. Nominees can come from any source, self-nominees included. Teaching nominees submit a CV, teaching philosophy, letter of recommendation, and one-page statement that describes how the nominee is innovative in regard to student success in the area of theatre arts. Graduate student nominees submit a CV, letter of recommendation and a one page statement that describes how the nominee is innovative in regard to their studies and/or research. Winners receive a handsome plaque, ATHE membership waiver for one year, and conference fee waiver for one year. Please submit your application materials to firstname.lastname@example.org by December 1, 2018.
The prizes can be awarded to any teacher and graduate student in the region, and it is desirable that her or his affiliated institution be a KCACTF participating school.
