- Richard C. Bartlett Environmental Education Award for 9-12 Teachers - Deadline Extended to June 15th
National Environmental Education Foundation (NEEF)
The Richard C. Bartlett Environmental Education Award is given annually to an outstanding middle or high school teacher who successfully integrates environmental education into their curriculum and engages students in interdisciplinary solutions to environmental challenges. The award recognizes an educator who can serve as an inspiration and model for others.
The 2012 Richard C. Bartlett Environmental Education Award will go to a high school teacher, which includes grades 9-12. Because middle and high school teachers may face different challenges in their teaching on the environment, the award alternates between middle and high school teachers each year.
The Richard C. Bartlett Environmental Education Award winner will receive $5,000 and two merit winners will receive $750 each.
A visionary, Richard C. Bartlett (1935-2011) inspired environmental educators nationwide. He believed that education is critical to preserving the natural world for future generations. His commitment to conservation and environmental education spanned over four decades. The Richard C. Bartlett Environmental Education Award, made possible through the generous support of Baxter Healthcare Corporation, was established with an original grant from Toyota Motor Sales USA to distinguish the teachers who best represent Dick Bartlett's passion for and leadership in environmental education.
Nominations for the Richard C. Bartlett Environmental Education Award are due June 15, 2012
