It’s STAO Award Nomination Time!!!!!

Are you working with an outstanding colleague, someone who has inspired you in your career?

Have you wished that that person could be recognized for his/her contributions to the teaching of science?

STAO can help you with that recognition.


Consider the following Award categories: 

IRWIN TALESNICK AWARD FOR EXCELLENCE IN THE TEACHING OF SCIENCE: to recognize excellence in the teaching of science in Ontario.

JACK BELL AWARD FOR LEADERSHIP IN SCIENCE EDUCATION:  for STAO/APSO members who have demonstrated outstanding and sustained leadership in science education in Ontario over a period of many years.

STAO/APSO EMERITUS AWARD: for a STAO/APSO member upon retirement.
