CEA Human and Civil Rights Awards


Why do we celebrate excellence? Educators live in a world filled with challenges and threats to their professions and their schools. But in spite of these challenges, they and other people and organizations find innovative ways to support and influence students and public education.

CEA's Human and Civil Rights Awards provide an opportunity to acknowledge these dedicated and diverse men and women for advancing human and civil rights, and standing up for public schools.
