Posted on 03/21/2017

The Presidential Awards for Excellence in Mathematics and Science Teaching (PAEMST) are the nation’s highest honors for teachers of mathematics and science. The 2016-2017 nomination and application period for 7-12th-grade mathematics and science (including computer science) teachers is currently open.


Established by Congress in 1983, the President may recognize up to 108 exemplary teachers each year. The National Science Foundation (NSF) administers PAEMST on behalf of The White House Office of Science and Technology Policy. Presidential awardees receive a certificate signed by the President; a trip to Washington, D.C. to attend a series of recognition events and professional development opportunities; and a $10,000 award from NSF.


Please consider nominating a talented science or mathematics teacher using the PAEMST website today.


The 2016-2017 nomination deadline is April 1, 2017.
