    CRITERIA:
    Recipient’s teaching should be innovative and creative. The nomination should
    include specific examples that impact individuals as well as the entire classroom.

    Example from past winner’s nomination:
    Recently, we have been learning about different Biomes, and to finish off this subject
    we have started our “Lights, Camera, Action” project. For this, partners make a short
    movie about a Biome that includes different topics we have learned about in the
    ecosystem such as food chain, energy transfer, symbolic relationships, etc. By doing a
    presentation instead of just reading it out of a book, we were able to learn in a more
    engaging way and also added technology to science.

    • A cash award of $500, Plaque and Hats Off Lapel Pin
