Program Description: The Presidential Awards for Excellence in Mathematics and Science Teaching (PAEMST) program was established by The White House and is sponsored by the National Science Foundation (NSF). The program identifies outstanding mathematics and science teachers, kindergarten through 12th grade, in each state and the four U.S. jurisdictions. These teachers serve as models for their colleagues and are leaders in the improvement of science and mathematics education. Since 1983 more than 5,000 teachers have been selected as Presidential Awardees.

The competition alternates each year between teachers of grades K-6 and teachers of grades 7-12. Teachers applying for PAEMST must be nominated. Anyone (e.g., principals, teachers, students, and other members of the general public) may nominate a teacher. Self-nominations are accepted.

Each Presidential Awardee receives a certificate signed by the President of the United States and a $10,000 award from NSF. Awardees are honored at an award ceremony which takes place in Washington, D.C. Additional events may include professional development opportunities and discussions with policy makers on how to improve science, technology, engineering, mathematics, and/or computer science education.
