Nominations of 7th – 12th grade teachers are currently being accepted through April 1. (Awards alternate every year between recognizing elementary and secondary school educators.)

Selected teachers will receive recognition from the President, a $10,000 award from the National Science Foundation, and an opportunity to travel to Washington, D.C. for the celebration and professional development activities.
