The CUE Outstanding Emerging Teacher award recognizes a classroom teacher who in the first 7 years of their teaching career has already made a noteworthy contribution to educational technology in a classroom setting.
  • A teacher that has worked part-time during these first 7 years counts any year in which they worked with students in the classroom for any appointment 50% or greater.
  • If a nominee served 49% or less, the year doesn’t count.
  • Partial years would be divided in the same way. Half or more counts, less does not. 
  • Regardless of the above, no teacher that has been working (part time or full time) more than 10 years shall be considered. 
  • Using technology to support standards-based curriculum is the key element in this award.
  • Nominees must be current classroom teachers and CUE members in good standing. 
  • Award winner will become CUE's nominee for the International Society for Technology in Education (ISTE) Outstanding Young Educator Award, unless ineligible as per ISTE's requirements.
