Nominations are open for the Presidential Award for Excellence in Mathematics and Science Teaching (PAEMST), which honors mathematics and science teachers in grades K-6.

Anyone may nominate exceptional mathematics or science teachers — including computer science teachers — who are teaching grades 7-12 for the 2014-15 award year. Teachers also may apply directly.

The nomination deadline is April 1, which gives nominated teachers time to prepare their applications prior to the May 1 application deadline. Teachers in grades 7-12 will be eligible to apply during the 2015-16 program year. Click here for more information or to nominate a teacher or apply directly.
