NEHTA Award Recipients

Kidger Award

The Kidger Award is given annually for excellence in teaching, research,writing, and/or service to the profession. The award honors Horace Kidger, a teacher in the Newton Schools and at Harvard, who served as secretary for New England History Teachers Association for a period spanning two world wars—some forty years. Nominations are accepted from any person who works or has an abiding interest in the profession of history, historical research, or teaching in the social studies. The Kidger Committee files all nominations, and a recommendation is passed to the Board of Directors of The New England History Teachers Association. In 1980, a second annual Kidger Award was added for exemplary teachers at the pre-collegiate level.
