Close Up Hall of Fame

The Close Up Hall of Fame honors educators who have gone above and beyond to help us fulfill our mission!


From extending Close Up’s reach to schools in their state to helping us launch locally based programs, Close Up Hall of Fame teachers embody the passion for civics that we strive to impart in young people. 

Do you know an educator who deserves a place in the Close Up Hall of Fame? Nominate them today for a feature on our website, in our newsletters, and on social media!
