Grant Description
Awards to New Mexico science teachers in kindergarten through grade 12 who have demonstrated excellence in teaching the STEM subjects (science, technology, engineering, and math) to their students. These awards honor outstanding Informal Science Educators and K-12 science teachers at the New Mexico Academy of Science Annual Meeting.

​A single award was established in 1968 to honor New Mexico STEM educators. Since 1990, awards have been given to two teachers annually. In 2018 the Academy opened the Awards to Informal Science Educators (ISE). The American Chemical Society has partnered with NMAS and currently presents the monetary award to both NMAS winning educators. Past teacher awardees have ranged from K through high school and from every part of the state of New Mexico.
