Champion Teachers 2012

Printer-friendly version

Who inspires and encourages your kids?

There are some amazing teachers in our community who help students prepare for the Bay Area Science and Engineering Fair as well as school and board fairs. BASEF initiated the Champion Teacher Recognition Awards to recognize and honour teachers who go above and beyond expectations in their efforts to teach students how to do project-based science and to mentor them as they prepare their projects for BASEF. A panel of BASEF Organizing Committee members select the Champion Teacher Recognition Award winners from among those nominated online by their peers, parents and students. Each winner receives a plaque and a cash award to be used in their classroom.
