Mathematics and Science Award applications due soon
Posted: 3/7/2012 3:54:55 PM
The National Science Foundation is currently accepting nominations and applications for the Presidential
Awards for Excellence in Mathematics and Science Teaching (PAEMST) program.
Known as the highest recognition for outstanding K-12 mathematics or science teaching in the United States, the awards bring a certificate signed by the President of the United States, a $10,000 award, a trip for two to Washington, D.C. to attend recognition events and professional development opportunities, and membership in an active national network of outstanding educators.
Up to 108 awardees may be recognized each year. Anyone—principals, teachers, parents, students, or members of the general public—may nominate a teacher by
completing a form available on the PAEMST website. The teacher's name, email address, and school contact information are required for the form. Teachers may also initiate
the application process themselves at the PAEMST website.
The nomination deadline is April 1. The application deadline is May 1 for elementary school teachers (Grades K-6). Secondary school teachers (Grades 7-12) are eligible to apply in 2013.
The National Science Foundation administers PAEMST on behalf of the White House Office of
Science and Technology Policy.
