The William B. McIlwaine Science Teaching Award has been established to promote and recognize the outstanding teaching of science in grades K-12 by full-time undergraduate students who have completed student teaching; or graduate students in academic programs leading to a degree or certification in a teaching field or full-time teachers who have completed no more than two years of teaching.
The Leadership in Science Education Award is presented to an individual not actively involved in classroom teaching. The awardee may be an administrator, business, or organization that over a period of at least five (5) years has made outstanding contributions in support of PSTA's mission and individual members of PSTA.
