U.S. Environmental Protection Agency’s Presidential Innovation Award for Environmental Educators
The U.S. Environmental Protection Agency is accepting applications for the Presidential Innovation Award for Environmental Educators. This award recognizes outstanding K-12 teachers who employ innovative approaches to environmental education and use the environment as a context for learning.
Up to two teachers from each of EPA's 10 regions will be selected to receive this award. Applicants will be evaluated based on five primary factors: innovation; achievement; service to the community and underserved populations; leadership; and integration of environmental education.
The White House Council on Environmental Quality, in partnership with EPA, administers this award to honor, support and encourage educators who incorporate environmental education in their classrooms and teaching methods.
Applications are due May 16, 2016.
