Each year, one college/university faculty member in each of the 8 KCACTF regions is chosen to be recognized for their innovation in teaching theatre.


Nominations (including self-nominations) will be solicited yearly in the Fall with an awardee chosen in early December by the Regional Executive Committee.  The application consists of a description of innovative teaching, CV, and two letters of recommendation.  Each Regional prize winner will be presented a certificate, a free one-year membership to ATHE, an ATHE Conference fee voucher, and an invitation to present on their teaching at the ATHE Conference.  This award will be presented at the Festival’s Closing Ceremony.


To nominate a faculty member, including self nominations, please apply here.

Application deadline December 20, 2022.
