- The Minnesota Association for Environmental Education is pleased to announce the 2013 Environmental Education Awards! Deadline: Dec 21
Minnesota Association for Environmental Education (MAEE)
The Minnesota Association for Environmental Education awards program exists to recognize and encourage excellence in the field of environmental education. Please take a moment to nominate a deserving fellow environmental educator for the 2013 awards by December 21, 2012.
Awards will be given in the following categories:
- Lifetime Achievement in Environmental Education: The Lifetime Achievement in Environmental Education award is presented for long-term, outstanding service and contribution to the field of environmental education in Minnesota. It is intended to recognize the efforts of those people who have had a large-scale, long-term impact in the field. These efforts may have taken the form of publications produced, legislation created, facilities developed, innovative curricula or programs developed, leadership provided to supporting organizations, funding acquired, or any other major contribution to the field.
- Formal Environmental Educator of the Year: This award is presented for outstanding, ongoing efforts in infusing environmental education into the schools curriculum. Teachers from all subjects and grades are eligible.
- Non-formal Environmental Educator of the Year: This award is presented for exhibiting innovative and exemplary effort in providing environmental education opportunities for audiences outside the formal school system. Professional and volunteer educators who teach in non-school settings are eligible (i.e. nature centers, zoos, museums, conservation or agriculture agencies, etc.).
All award winners will be recognized at the MAEE annual conference in June 2013 and on the MAEE website. Awards include a one year paid membership to MAEE, reduced conference registration and a sustainable commemorative award.
To nominate yourself or another individual for any of the awards described, please go to: www.minnesotaee.org/awards for complete information and nomination forms.
