2021 HREC Educator Award


The Holodomor Research and Education Consortium (HREC) announces its 2021 HREC Educator Award marking the commemoration of the Ukrainian genocide known as the Holodomor, which took place on the territory of Ukraine in 1932-33. The Holodomor is included in curricula on human rights, genocide, history and social justice in many parts of Canada, and is one of eight genocides formally recognized by the Government of Canada.

The HREC Educator Award for Holodomor Lesson Plan Development is awarded annually by HREC, a project of the Canadian Institute of Ukrainian Studies, University of Alberta. The award is intended to foster the development of innovative, creative and interactive lessons for grades K-12 that develop critical thinking skills while addressing the topic of the Holodomor, and to recognize the outstanding educators who create them.

Individual awards will vary up to but not exceeding $2,000 CDN based on the quality of submissions. The winning lesson plans will be posted on the HREC Education website and their authors will be acknowledged. Honourable Mention may also be accorded to lesson plans that will not be posted.
