Pre-Application Information:

Completed applications must be received by December 17, 2020. Use the on-line submission form.

Special projects may be mentioned but should not be the main focus of the candidate’s application.

Applications should reflect National Science Education Standards.

Procedure:

- The Shell Science Teaching Award Judging Panel will review the nomination packets and select 10 finalists. These individuals will then be asked to provide a YouTube video of no longer than thirty minutes that features classroom activities with students that clearly reflect the candidate’s teaching philosophy and application submission. The classroom is defined as indoor or outdoor—wherever the candidate teaches science. The video will be due in mid-January.
- The Shell Science Teaching Award Judging Panel will review the videos and select three finalists. The committee will then form a subcommittee consisting of three (3) members, who will visit each finalist. Site visits will take place at the candidates’ schools in February. The subcommittee will then determine the recipient of the award.

During the conference, the award recipient and the two finalists will be honored at the Awards Banquet. The recipient will also be recognized at the Teacher Awards Banquet.
