Outstanding earth science teacher award

The outstanding earth science teacher award is made by the National Association of Geoscience Teachers. There is a state award, a section award, and the national award. The winner at each level is automatically in competition at the next level.

I am the representative for Alabama. You can submit nomination materials to me digitally, or on paper to me at:

Geological Survey of Alabama.
Box 869999
Tuscaloosa, AL 35486-6999

My email address:

The nomination form appears below, but, you can apply through the website of the NAGT:

Winners get free books, money, plaques, and other good stuff.

The deadline for nominating your teacher for this award is the end of April, but don't leave it to the last minute. You can nominate a teacher (a can be yourself) any time of the year. In fact, the school year has just ended, or will end soon, depending on where you live. When a teacher gets out, they have lots of free time. That is the perfect time to ask them for the information you need to fill out the nomination form. If you are a teacher, this is the perfect time to nominate yourself or a colleague. Don't wait for the school year to start again. This is when teachers are busy and possibly a little distracted by their work. Do it in the summer when they are relaxing by the pool or working in their gardens.
