Earth education for all
Please submit the following information and photo by the date noted above. This information will be used to create your award plaque and will be included in the program distributed at the awards luncheon at GSA, as well as in profiles of honorees published in In the Trenches and posted at the NAGT website.
Please provide a short (300 words for section winners, 200 words for state winners) biography for the luncheon program and the website. Information appropriate for this biography would include: Number of years' teaching experience, previous teaching honors, academic degrees and institutions where they were earned, a description of your teaching philosophy or approach, description of particularly innovative/effective teaching practices you use, extracurricular activities that inform your teaching practice.
For consistency among awardee bios, we ask that you please write your bio in the third person (e.g. Jane Doe is a middle school science teacher at Central Middle School in Springfield. Jane has been teaching for more than 10 years...)
Please provide a publication quality photo for the printed program and website.
The final size of printed photos after cropping will be 1.6" x 2" at a resolution of 300 pixels/inch, or 480 x 600 pixels. This means that digital photos need to be larger than that to begin with. Photos from websites (generally 72 pixels/inch) may be able to be used but ONLY if they are at least 6 inches wide to begin with. Formal headshots are the norm, but interesting action (teaching, lab, field trip) images can also work. Avoid distracting backgrounds, harsh flash, and overhead fluorescent lighting that can result in "raccoon eyes."
Here are some examples of usable images. Click on the image to see it full size.
If you cannot provide such an image, we can accept a printed photo for scanning. Please contact the office for mailing information if you need to make use of this option.

Choosing the correct file type here will override that.
e.g. 'student_handout'This will be the name of the downloaded file. By default
the system will generate this based on the title you specified and the type of file. If you
specify a name here it will over-ride the automatically generated name. This is generally only
useful when uploading file of a type not recognized by the system (not in the list of
file types above). In that situation choose File Type: Unknown Binary and include the appropriate
suffix in the file name here. e.g. myfile.m3z
Avoid spaces or special characters in the file names.
(You)Someone else -- Describe below.
A short description of where the material came from. Include names and institutions of authors and contributors as well as acknowledgment of any work from which this was derived.
The creator/copyright holder must have agreed to allow distribution of this file through this site. If you are the creator we strongly encourage you to select the CC Attribution-NonCommercial-ShareAlike option.
If none of the above licenses apply describe the conditions under
which this material appears on this site as well as any information
about reuse beyond this site.
Distributing information on the web generally requires the permission of the copyright holder--usually the original creator. Providing the information we request here will help visitors to this site understand the ways in which they may (legally) use what they find.
If you created this file (and haven't signed away your copyright) then we'd encourage you to select the CC Attribution-NonCommercial-ShareAlike option. You'll retain the copyright to your file and can do as you please with it in the future.
Through this choice you are also explicitly allowing others to reuse that file as long as they give you attribution, and don't use it for commercial purposes.
If the file (or content within it) was created by others you'll need their permission. If it predates 1923 or was created by a U.S federal employee (as part of their job) it is likely in the public domain (and we can all do as we choose with it). The original author may also have explicitly stated how it may be reused (e.g. through a creative commons license). You can describe the licensing/reuse situation in the box above.
Without permission you should not upload the file. There are several options in this case:
