Peter Jennings Award

Established in 2007, the Peter Jennings Award for Civic Leadership is presented annually to a Teach For America alum who embodies our core values and whose work has led to significant change on a broad scale in the last year.

This award is named as a tribute to the late journalist Peter Jennings whose dedication to expanding educational opportunity has done so much to advance our cause. 

The winner of the award receives a prize of $10,000. Award winners and finalists are honored at a special event in New York City. Read more about our 2017 winner and finalist in One Day Magazine.
