Nominations Remain Open for 2020/2021
Due to the unprecedented last year, due to the COVID-19 pandemic, we have left the awards nominations open from last year. This year we will be awarding for 2020 and2021. We have received a number of nominations. Thank you to those who have sent them in. If you still want to send in a nomination please do so!
One of the most important functions of the Oregon Science Teachers Association is to recognize outstanding science educators across the state. Each year the OSTA Executive Board selects several individuals for statewide and regional awards. The Awardees are selected by committee from individuals nominated by members of OSTA.
These awards are only as important and meaningful as the science education community makes them. Look around you; look at the colleagues in your school, district, and region. Which ones are the hardest working, the most passionate, and the most skilled at exciting students about science and the process of scientific discovery? Which ones contribute most to the profession of science teaching? These are the individuals you should be nominating. The process is simple but can be enormously meaningful.
