Two teachers will be awarded in each category

  • Excellence in Science

Additionally, awards will be given to professors and staff in higher education that exemplify excellence in STEM education and outreach. Many businesses in southern Utah have been welcoming and a positive force in STEM education and may be awarded as well.

Each spring, nominations will open for anyone to share how their favorite STEM educators have made a difference in student lives through STEM principles and teaching.
