Developing a Competitive Teacher Award Application

This web seminar took place on October 3, 2012 from 6:30 p.m. to 8:00 p.m. Eastern Time. The presenter was Marilyn Richardson, Chair of NSTA’s Awards and Recognition Committee. During this program, Ms. Richardson shared details about more than 17 awards that NSTA offers to outstanding teachers of science.

The PowerPoint, related resources from the NSTA Learning Center, and web links from the presentation are now contained in the above resource collection. Clicking on the collection link will place it in your Learning Center, My Library, neatly organized under the My Resource Collections tab.

During the presentation, Ms. Richardson provided an overview of NSTA’s teacher awards, which recognize pre-kindergarten through college science educators (grades pre-K-16) in the United States and Canada who have had a positive impact on their students through innovative classroom science teaching. Ms. Richardson gave tips and strategies for submitting a standout award application. Participants had the chance to start brainstorming ideas for their own applications and shared ideas for spreading the word about the awards program to other teachers.

Seminar participants received one of the NSTA SciGuides. A certificate of attendance was deposited into participants' My PD Record and Certificates area in the NSTA Learning Center for completing the evaluation form at the end of the program.

Here are some comments provided by the participants at the end of the Web Seminar:

  • “I have a better understanding of the different awards available.”
  • “It is a great beginning to help us research the awards.”
  • “Thank you for the information. I was not aware that NSTA had so many awards available!”

Thanks to the participants and the presenter for the learning opportunity, the interactions, and a job well done!
