Outstanding Accounting Educator Award

The Outstanding Accounting Educator Award recognizes Texas accounting educators who have demonstrated excellence in teaching and have distinguished themselves through active service to the accounting profession. The awards give profession-wide recognition to the recipients along with promoting role models in academe.

The award recipients will be honored before their peers during TXCPA’s annual Accounting Education Conference. Recipients receive a $500 award, a recognition plaque and complimentary registration to the conference. News releases will be distributed to state and national accounting media, and to each recipient’s hometown media and college or university public information office.

One Outstanding Accounting Educator Award may be awarded in each category (community college, small, medium, and large university or college). Winners will be notified prior to the annual Accounting Education Conference. Awards will not be given in categories where judges determine that the entries do not merit them.

The Outstanding Accounting Educator Awards are funded by the Accounting Education Foundation and presented by the TXCPA Relations with Educational Institutions Committee to honor those with a history of excellence in education.

Nominations for the annual awards may be submitted by Texas colleges, universities, community colleges, TXCPA chapters and members.
