Nominate a Teacher for Presidential Awards
Elementary, K-8 Schools
The Presidential Awards for Excellence in Mathematics and Science Teaching (PAEMST), is the highest award that a K-12 science or mathematics (including computer science) teacher may receive in the United States.
The PAEMST program was established in 1983 by the White House and is sponsored by the National Science Foundation (NSF). The program identified outstanding mathematics and science (including computer science) teachers of grades K-12 in the 50 states and the four U.S. jurisdictions. The competition alternates each year between teachers of grades K-6 and teachers of grades 7-12. For school year 2015-2016, applicants must teach science or mathematics (including computer science) as part of their contracted teaching responsibilities at the K-6 grade level.
Nominations can be made at www.paemst.org. Attached is a flyer with all information.
