We want to honor a deserving K-12 Earth Science Teacher

Do you know a U.S.-based K-12 Earth science teacher who is exceptionally dedicated, knowledgeable and skilled in providing excellence in geoscience education?

Perhaps that description fits you?

The Teacher of the Year (TOTY) Award, funded and presented annually by the AAPG Foundation, is granted to an outstanding teacher within the United States who has demonstrated outstanding leadership in the field of geoscience education. Nominations and applications are now being accepted.

Six teachers across the country will be identified as finalists, each from one of six U.S. geographic sections (Eastern, Gulf Coast, Mid-Continent, Pacific, Rocky Mountain and Southwest). After final nominations are decided, the TOTY Committee will convene to pick the final winner of the 2017 Teacher of the Year Award.

The TOTY winner will receive a $6,000 prize, half of which is given to the teacher for personal use and the other half to his or her school for educational purposes under the teacher's supervision. The TOTY winner also will receive an expense-paid trip for two to the AAPG Annual Convention and Exhibition in Houston, April 2-5, 2017 to receive the award.

Each semi-finalist will receive an honorable mention and a $500 cash prize for their nominations.

Learn more about the awards, requirements and guidelines, or forward this announcement to your favorite geoscience teacher today. For further information, email a .
