Awards Inspired by Exemplary STEM Teaching

Are you the next award-winning kindergarten to sixth-grade teacher? For more than 35 years, the Presidential Awards for Excellence in Mathematics and Science Teaching (PAEMST) have rewarded and inspired teachers across the country. PAEMST, which have honored more than 5,000 teachers, are the highest honors bestowed by the United States government specifically for K–12 science, technology, engineering, mathematics, and/or computer science teaching. Awardees serve as role models for their colleagues and inspire their communities. PAEMST awardees receive a trip to Washington, DC, to celebrate their achievements; a certificate signed by the US President; a $10,000 award from the National Science Foundation (NSF); and the opportunity to build lasting partnerships with colleagues from across the nation. NSF administers PAEMST on behalf of The White House Office of Science and Technology Policy (OSTP). To learn more about eligibility requirements, nominate a teacher, or apply yourself, visit
