RECOGNITION AND AWARDS

The Presidential Awards for Excellence in Mathematics and Science Teaching

The Presidential Awards for Excellence in Mathematics and Science Teaching (PAEMST) are the nation's highest honors for teachers of mathematics and science (including computer science). Awardees serve as models for their colleagues, inspiration to their communities, and leaders in the improvement of mathematics and science education.

Since 1983, more than 4,700 teachers have been recognized for their contributions in the classroom and to their profession. If you know great teachers, nominate them to join this prestigious network of professionals.

AWARD PROCESS

NATIONAL SCIENCE TEACHERS ASSOCIATION
AWARDS AND RECOGNITION

The annual NSTA Awards and Recognition Program recognizes exceptional and innovative science educators. The NSTA Awards and Recognition were created in 1973 to raise awareness and exposure of the outstanding work being done in the science education field.

All entries must be received by 11:59PM EST on 12/15/2016, via online submission, with the exception of the Shell Science Teaching Award, whose deadline is 1/06/2017. Entry fees are free.

A distinguished panel of professional science educators will gather the weekend of 1/16/2017 to select the winners from an anticipated 500 entries. To be eligible for consideration, all work must be current and cumulative as applicable.

The NSTA Awards and Recognition recipients will be honored during a black-tie dinner gala on 3/31/2017 in Los Angeles, California, at the NSTA National Conference on Science Education.

The NSTA Awards and Recognition Program is sponsored in part by Bio-Rad, DuPont/Pioneer, Northrop Grumman Foundation, PASCO, SeaWorld Parks and Entertainment, Shell, Vernier Software & Technology. Sponsorships for the NSTA Awards help support the science educators and their science educational programs, professional development and proactive efforts in the science education field.
