Each year, the organization selects fifty or more state winners. Hinson was chosen for the state of South Carolina. Each state winner receives $1,000 and a large archive of American history classroom resources presented to his or her school library in the winner's honor. From the winners in each state, one winner is chosen as a national winner. The national winner receives an additional $10,000 and a trip to New York City for the national award ceremony. Elementary (K-6) and middle and high school teachers (7-12), are considered in separate categories and in alternate years.

Hinson was nominated by Elizabeth Collins of South Florence High School.

Her students wrote the letters received letters back from people affected by the case. Hinson's students also created a specific art project in her classroom.
