DiscoverE, a non-profit organization whose mission is to support a dynamic engineering profession, announces a call for nominations for its 2015 Educator Awards. The awards recognize the top educators in grades 6-12 who inspire students to discover engineering.
Both professional engineers and engineering students are part of the nomination process. Nominators describe the merits of their candidate by relating the impact that the educator has had on students, as well as how they continue to motivate students.
From now until March 16, 2015, individuals can submit their nominations online at bit.ly/1BuRsn1. Winners will receive a trip to Washington, D.C., a $2,000 cash prize, and a 3M gift pack of classroom supplies. Their engineer/student nominators will also receive the trip to Washington, D.C. Eight notable runners-up will receive $500 each and gift packs.
Bechtel, ExxonMobil Corporation, 3M, Shell Oil Corporation, and the United Engineering Foundation (UEF) are sponsors
