Excellence in Science Teaching Awards (ESTA)

The Iowa Academy of Science awarded the first Excellence in Science Teaching Awards in 1969. Outstanding teachers of all grade levels and areas of science have been recognized for their work and innovations in science education. Nominations are encouraged from administrators, colleagues, or a teacher may self-nominate. Selections are made by the Awards and Recognition Committee. Winners are honored at a luncheon during the Iowa Academy of Science Annual Meeting. Awardees receive a plaque and a $200 award.
