DES MOINES | Nominations are being sought for Iowa's best science, technology, engineering and math educators.
The award, now in its second year, recognizes full-time, K-12 teachers representing IOWA — Innovative, Outstanding, Worldly and Academic — in their classrooms.
It will be given to one teacher from each of the six STEM regions across the state. Recipients will receive $1,500 with an additional $1,500 designated for use in their classroom.
Anyone can nominate a teacher by visiting stemaward.fluidreview.com through Dec. 11.
Once nominated, teachers may complete an application to be reviewed by a panel of judges who will select the six award recipients. Honorees will be announced in April 2016.
The award is being presented by the Iowa Governor's STEM Advisory Council in partnership with Kemin Industries.
