MAST Awards

We award a county educator award for each of the 13 counties in our state, as well as an award for a new teacher of science and two awards honoring those who have made great accomplishments in the profession. One of these awards the person does not need to be a member of our association to be nominated or awarded.

The nomination form is a simple one and the only requirement is that you attach a one-page summary of the nominee’s accomplishments, or esteemed work, in the field of science education. Our website has a listing of each award and anyone can nominate a deserving science educator. Once you have completed the nomination form, all nominees will be notified of this honor, regardless of their status. Please click here to download the nomination form.

The deadline for receiving all nominations is September 30, 2016.
