    • NCTE Research Foundation Teacher Research Grants Deadline: October 1
      Applicants should be full-time classroom teachers at the time of proposal submission and for the length of the grant. Proposals are invited from teachers of children and youth at any level, birth through grade 12. Teachers in urban, suburban, and rural settings are eligible.
    • George Orwell and Doublespeak Award Deadline: September 15
      The NCTE Public Language Awards Committee invites nominations for the 2017 George Orwell and Doublespeak awards. The Orwell Award recognizes writers who have made outstanding contributions to the critical analysis of public discourse. The Doublespeak Award is an ironic tribute to public speakers who have perpetuated language that is grossly deceptive, evasive, euphemistic, confusing, or self-centered.
