About the Citadel Heart of Learning Award

Each year, Citadel receives thousands of nominations for this nationally recognized award (more than 2,700 entries received for more than 1,200 teachers). Our team carefully reviews each nomination and eventually narrows the list to 15 finalists:

  • One teacher from each of the 13 area public school districts
  • One teacher from the Chester County Intermediate Unit
  • One teacher from a non-public school in Chester County (including charter and home schools)

Each of the finalists receives $500 to use in his or her classroom. From this elite group, three winners are selected:

  • One high school teacher
  • One middle school teacher
  • One elementary school teacher

Each winner receives the Citadel Heart of Learning Award along with an additional $1,500 for use in the classroom.
