Presidential Awards for Excellence in Math and Science Teaching


The Presidential Awards for Excellence in Mathematics Teaching are the nation's highest honor for teachers of mathematics. The Awards recognize exemplary K-12 teachers for their contributions in the classroom and to their profession.

Principals, teachers, students, parents, members of the community, or the general public may nominate a teacher. Self-nominations are not accepted. Nominations are due April 1.

Once nominated, a teacher must complete an application to be considered for the award. The application includes a videotaped lesson and written responses to questions about the teacher's instructional practice. Applications from nominated teachers are due May 3.

Nominate outstanding elementary (grades K-6) teachers now for the 2010 awards. Nominations for secondary school teachers (grades 7-12) will be accepted next year.
