Nominations are open for the Kentucky Science Teachers Association (KSTA) Outstanding Teacher of the Year awards and for the Sherry Fox Distinguished Service Award.

KSTA annually recognizes one elementary school teacher, one middle school teacher and one high school teacher for exemplary teaching in science. In addition, a distinguished science educator who has made important contributions in a capacity outside of the regular science classroom is recognized.

Teacher of the year nominees must have at least three years of full-time classroom experience and must be KSTA members. Winners will receive $100 grants, one year of free membership in KSTA and free registration for the annual KSTA conference the following year.

The nomination deadline is July 15. Visit the KSTA website for a nomination form.
