It is time to nominate your favorite educator!
New Hampshire Environmental Educators (NHEE) is seeking nominations for its annual award recognizing New Hampshire’s outstanding environmental educators.
This person may be hiding in plain sight (just like the octopus in this awesome video), thinking "I'm just a math teacher who happens to bring my students out to measure storm water runoff," or "I am simply the home economics teacher, teaching students how to be part of a local or sustainable food system." But you know better! They are inspiring our students to care about the world around them. We would love to reward their hard work and heroic efforts! We especially want to hear about folks who are making an effort to be inclusive, reaching audiences who may not always have the luxury to experience 'nature' or gain environmental literacy on their own. The nomination deadline is March 1st. Thank you in advance!
The award is open to all New Hampshire public and private school teachers employed in grades K-12, college or graduate school and non-formal educators working in New Hampshire. Runners-up from previous years are eligible and encouraged to apply. Get some inspiration by looking back at some of our previous award winners.
The winning educator will receive a $200 cash award and a one-year membership in New Hampshire Environmental Educators. Recognition of the winner will occur at the NHEE's annual meeting, which will take place this year on April 13th at Southern New Hampshire University. Please fill out a nomination form and spread the word!
