Emily Longworth Memorial Award

The Emily Longworth Memorial Award was established in memory of Emily Longworth, a teacher candidate who was an inspiration and role model to her students. The purpose of the Award is to help fund curriculum enrichment and/or extracurricular activities for children that promote positive social change, such as multicultural understanding, healthy lifestyles, environmental awareness, and inspiration to achieve their full potential in life.

We encourage all BEd Elementary & Middle Years teacher candidates to apply if your practica will take place in a less-privileged socioeconomic area.
