Mt. Hebron High School economics teacher Vann Prime has won the Council for Economic Education’s (CCE’s) 2021 John Morton Excellence in the Teaching of Economics Award. This is the most prestigious national award given to economics educators.
The award is given annually to an outstanding elementary, middle, and high school teacher. It recognizes teachers who demonstrate exemplary teaching techniques that improve students’ economic understanding, and awareness of economics and economic decision making, in and out of the classroom.
Mr. Prime received his award at the annual CEE conference held this fall. At the event, he joined the elementary and middle school awardees to share best practices on classroom techniques.
In addition to teaching economics, Mr. Prime is the faculty coach of Mt. Hebron’s National Economics Challenge Teams, which have placed first nationally for the past three years. He has also coached Team USA at each International Economics Olympiad since 2019.
The Council for Economic Education’s mission is to equip K-12 students with the tools and knowledge of personal finance and economics so that they can make better decisions for themselves, their families, and their communities.
