The Department of Education is planning to recognize two U.S. educators for the Presidential Cybersecurity Education Award in May 2020. ED said in a document dated Sept. 5 that it plans to announce the award during National Cybersecurity Awareness Month in October and recognize the winners as part of Teacher Appreciation Week in May.

According to the notice, ED intends to award one elementary and one secondary school educator who “best instill skills, knowledge, and passion with respect to cybersecurity and cybersecurity-related subjects.” The department plans to accept nominations until Jan. 31, 2020 ahead of an evaluation period that will run from February through April of that year.

Feedback on ED’s proposal must be submitted by Sept. 25.
