Virginia Outstanding Secondary Math or Science Teacher Award
Nominations due: March 5th, 2012.
Sigma Xi is a national society dedicated to promoting research
in the sciences and mathematics. The Virginia Tech Chapter, established in
1940, has long presented an annual award to an outstanding math or science
teacher in a Virginia middle or high school. This award is part of Sigma Xi's
national program and is intended to recognize career-long commitments to
providing meaningful learning experiences for students. The selected teacher
receives an engraved plaque and $500 cash award presented at our annual
initiation and awards banquet in Blacksburg, usually held in April. In
addition, $500 is donated to the teacher's school in support of math and
science programs. The honoree and the principal of the school will be given
complementary banquet tickets to receive the award.
