March 2019 – Calling all baking educators! Classroom educators, community organization and afterschool program leaders are encouraged to enter. Submit a baking activity or lesson by March 31 to be eligible to win the $1,000 award and a trip for two to Lake Placid, NY!
The Home Baking Association (HBA) recognizes an educator annually. The non-profit association seeks to reward educators who have implemented outstanding programs that teach children to bake and share baking in their communities.
Family and consumer sciences (FCS) educators and youth organization leaders for FCCLA (Family Career Community Leaders of America), 4-H, Boys and Girls Clubs, Camp Fire USA and other after-school or community programs are encouraged to share successful community baking programs. Youth who have developed baking programs that teach other youth to bake are also invited to enter.
The outstanding educator selected will receive $1,000 and a trip to the HBA Annual Meeting to present the winning project. All entrants will receive a complimentary teaching resource.

Congratulations to the 2016 Educator Award Winner, Delaine Stendahl, family and consumer sciences teacher, Whitehall, WI. Stendahl won the award with her entry The Power of Eggs.
