The nominations deadline for the 2007 AAPG Teacher of the Year award is nearing. All AAPG Sections must submit their nominations by Nov. 1.
The award, presented annually by the AAPG Foundation, honors excellence in the teaching of natural resources in earth sciences for grades K-12.
The winning teacher receives an award of $5,000 that is split – $2,500 goes to the teacher’s school for educational use under the teacher’s supervision, and $2,500 goes to the teacher for personal use.
An expense paid trip to the 2007 annual meeting in Long Beach, Calif., also is included. The award is presented during the All-Convention Luncheon.
