Nominate Outstanding Teachers for the 2007 Presidential Awards for
Excellence in Mathematics and Science Teaching
Show your support for outstanding  mathematics and science teachers at your
school by nominating them for the 2007 Presidential Awards for Excellence in
Mathematics and Science Teaching. Each year, on behalf of The White House,
the National Science Foundation selects highly qualified teachers based on
their deep mathematics or science content knowledge and their ability to
show evidence of student progress in these areas.
The call for nominations for the 2007 awards is open!  The nomination and
application period for the nationšs highest honor for mathematics and
science teachers will close May 1, 2007. Nominate 7th-12th grade teachers
today by visiting <> .
K-6th grade teachers may be nominated in 2008.
The Presidential Award is the nationšs highest honor for teaching
mathematics and science at the K-12 level.  Many of these teachers selected
for this honor already:
* Serve as district curriculum leaders, lead teachers or department chairs
* Mentor teachers in their school or district, encouraging and inspiring
them to become outstanding teachers
* Provide professional development on standards-based education
* Serve on state textbook and materials adoption committees
* Participate in after school and community functions involving students and
* Present in state mathematics and science conferences
Research shows that teachers who receive the Presidential award use that
recognition and honor to grow professionally ‹taking on even greater roles
as leaders, mentors and scholars locally, nationally, and internationally.
As presidential winners, award recipients receive the following:
ˇ    A citation signed by the President of the United States.
ˇ    The opportunity to join a dynamic network of Presidential awardees.
ˇ    A paid trip for two to Washington, DC, to attend a weeklong series of
recognition events and professional development opportunities.
ˇ    Gifts from program sponsors from around the country.
ˇ    A $10,000 award from the National Science Foundation.
