The Board of Regents invites nominations for the Louis E. Yavner Teaching and Citizen Awards. These awards provide recognition of a teacher and a citizen who have made outstanding contributions to New York State education about the Holocaust and other violations of human rights. The awards were established by the Regents and funded by the late Regent Emeritus Louis E. Yavner. State Education Department staff are not eligible for these awards. 

The deadline for submission of nominations is November 30 of each year. Award winners will be notified the following March. Their names will remain confidential until the award ceremony in May.
