National Science Teachers Association Invites Nominations for Shell Science Teaching Award

The National Science Teachers Association, with support from the Shell Oil Company, is inviting nominations for the Shell Science Teaching Award, an annual program that recognizes an outstanding classroom science teacher (K–12) who has had a positive impact on his or her students, school, and community through exemplary classroom science teaching.

The award includes a $10,000 cash prize and an all-expense paid trip to attend NSTA’s national conference; two finalists will also receive all-expense-paid trips to the conference.

Nominees must be classroom teachers whose responsibilities include teaching science. In addition,  nominees must have a minimum of eight years of experience (not including the current school year) as a teacher of science, and must teach in a private or public school in the United States, U.S. Territories, Department of Defense schools, or in Canada.

Visit the NSTA website for complete program guidelines, information about previous winners, an informational webinar, and nomination instructions.
