FETC 2019 STEM EXCELLENCE AWARDS APPLICATION
The FETC STEM Excellence Awards were created to recognize distinction and innovation in the field of STEM education at the primary, middle and high school levels, with finalists and winners selected from each level. STEM is a curriculum based on the idea of educating students in four specific disciplines — science, technology, engineering and mathematics — in an interdisciplinary and applied approach.

The STEM Excellence Awards will be evaluated based on the use of Interdisciplinary Curriculum, Collaboration, Design, Problem Solving and the STEM Experiences offered by each school. All 18 questions below are REQUIRED. All applications for consideration must be completed by each school applicant online before OCTOBER 29, 2018. The FETC STEM Advisory Board will evaluate all applications and notify the main contacts for each application.

Administrators and teachers who want to have their school’s STEM success recognized should apply online by OCTOBER 29, 2018. Nominees and winners will be selected from each of the primary, middle and high school levels. Finalists and winners in all 3 categories will be recognized at the FETC 2019 STEM Keynote Session on Wednesday, January 30, 2019. Winners in all three categories will be announced during the keynote session. Additionally, each finalist school will present their exemplar program in the STEM Theater at FETC 2019 LIVE during the conference January 27-30, 2019. Notification of finalists will happen on or before December 1st and will be posted on the FETC web page.
