The Presidential Awards for Excellence in Mathematics and Science Teaching (PAEMST) Program, sponsored by the White House and NSF, identifies outstanding science and mathematics teachers, kindergarten through 12th grade, in each state and the four U.S. jurisdictions. These teachers will serve as models for their colleagues and will be leaders in the improvement of science and mathematics education. Recognition is given to K-12 teachers in four award groups, (l) elementary mathematics, (2) elementary science, (3) secondary mathematics, and (4) secondary science. The secondary groups include middle, junior, and senior high school teachers. This site provides information regarding eligibility, application procedures, as well as information about past winners. We encourage projects to nominate eligible teachers.
