Do you know a science teacher who is significantly impacting the lives of his or her students in kindergarten through 12th grade?
The West Virginia Academy of Science is taking nominations for science teacher of the year. One West Virginia teacher will be selected from the ranks of K-12 teachers and awarded $300 by the West Virginia Academy of Science, as well as lifetime membership in the WVAS.
The winning teacher also will receive free admission to the WVAS annual meeting and Science Technology & Research Symposium on April 20-21, 2012, at West Virginia State University in Institute.
Teachers can be nominated by students, colleagues, administrators and others. The winning teacher will be selected by Academy of Science members who review detailed nominations that explain the significance the teacher has on the lives of students. These nominations can be submitted electronically to firstname.lastname@example.org.
