Engineers Want To Thank A Teacher

Nominations are now open for teachers to be considered for National Engineers Week Foundation's DiscoverE Educator Recognition Program.

Nominations will be accepted through March 8, 2013, and winners will be announced in April. Up to three winners will each receive a trip to Washington, D.C. for recognition in June 2013, a $2,000 cash prize, 3M digital projector and 3M gift pack of classroom supplies. Their engineer/student nominators will also receive the trip to Washington, D.C.

Teacher nominees must be full-time U.S. or international school-based educators teaching in grades 6-12 and they must be nominated by an engineer or engineering student (college or graduate level).

The DiscoverE Educator Recognition Program was established in 2012 to identify and celebrate exceptional STEM educators who are helping students discover engineering. The goal of the program is to tell the compelling stories of exceptional teachers who have made an impact on their students.

National Engineers Week is February 17-23!
