MGS Teacher of the Year Award
What better way to promote earth science in the state of Montana than to recognize and reward those who do it every day?
The MGS applauds the hard work of outstanding K-12 Earth Science Teachers in Montana. Each year Teacher of the Year (TOTY) applications are reviewed and the most deserving candidate is selected by the MGS Awards Committee to receive $1000. The MGS winner is then eligible to apply for the regional Teacher of the Year Award (an additional $2000) through the Rocky Mountain Section of the American Association of Petroleum Geologists (RMS-AAPG). The winner of the RMS-AAPG award becomes the RMS-AAPG nominee for the national American Association of Petroleum Geologists award, which is $6000 ($3000 for the teacher and $3000 for their school). That’s the potential for $9000 in cash awards!
If you teach and promote Earth Science in your classroom or in the outdoors, the MGS encourage you to apply for the TOTY Award. A completed application form and letter of support is all you need.
