DiscoverE Educator Awards

national engineers week foundationDeadline: Dec. 1, 2011

The DiscoverE Educator Awards from the National Engineers Week Foundation shine a spotlight on the educators who are inspiring tomorrow’s innovation generation. Unique to this program, engineers and engineering students are part of the nomination process.

This community recognizes that educators deserve support and respect when it comes to advancing student learning. By honoring the educators who are hard at work in our classrooms, the engineering profession wants to show its appreciation and respect for the educators who are helping students discover engineering.

Teacher nominees must be full-time U.S. or international school-based educators teaching in grades 6-12 and nominated by an engineer or engineering student (college or graduate level).

DiscoverE Educator winners will receive unrestricted cash awards, prizes and media recognition. Up to three winners will receive a trip to Washington, D.C. for a recognition event on February 22, a $2,000 cash prize, a 3M digital projector, and a 3M gift pack of classroom supplies. Their engineer/student nominators will also receive the trip to Washington, D.C. Eight runners-up will receive $500 each, 3M digital cameras, and gift packs. An additional 12 honorable mentions will receive 3M gift packs.
