Who inspires and encourages your kids?

The Champion Teacher Recognition Award for 2014 includes induction into the BASEF Champion Teacher Hall of Fame, a plaque, and $350 for use in the classroom of the winning teacher. $250 of this year’s award is funded as part of the Awards for Excellence in Science & Technology. A panel of BASEF Organizing Committee members selects the Champion Teacher Recognition Award winners from among those nominated online by their peers, parents and students.

This award recognizes a science teacher who displays a remarkable ability to empower and excite student interest in science and who actively promotes the Bay Area Science and Engineering Fair.
