Presidential Awards for Excellence
in Mathematics and Science Teaching
The Presidential Award for Excellence in Mathematics and Science Teaching is the highest recognition that a kindergarten through 12th-grade mathematics or science teacher may receive for outstanding teaching in the United States. Enacted by Congress in 1983 and administered by the National Science Foundation, this program authorizes the President to bestow up to 108 awards each year.
In addition to honoring individual achievement, the goal of the award program is to exemplify the highest standards of mathematics and science teaching. Awardees serve as models for their colleagues, inspiration to their communities, and leaders in the improvement of mathematics and science education. For more information visit https://www.paemst.org.
