The National Science Teachers Association is accepting applications for its DuPont Pioneer Excellence in Agricultural Science Education Award, which is sponsored by DuPont.
The annual award recognizes excellence and innovation in the field of agricultural science education. A single grant of $3,500 will be awarded to a teacher for his/her classroom/program, paid travel expenses to attend the NSTA national conference on science education, mentorship opportunities with a DuPont Pioneer scientist, classroom resources from DuPont Pioneer, and access to a DuPont Pioneer product plant or research facility. The awardee will be presented the award at the Teacher Awards Banquet at the National Conference.
The award program is open to any K-12 science teacher who incorporates innovative agricultural science activities into their existing science curriculum.
See the NSTA website for complete program guidelines and application instructions.
