The Virginia Mathematics and Science Coalition (VMSC) invite you to nominate effective student and teacher education programs for its annual “Programs That Work” Awards. The VMSC recognizes exemplary mathematics, science, integrated science, technology, engineering, and mathematics (STEM) programs for which there is evidence of a positive impact on student or teacher learning. Proposals will be evaluated on the extent that applicants are able to:
- Represent innovative, exemplary programs that have proven effective with all students or teachers
- Demonstrate the important mathematics, science, and STEM concepts, skills or processes students and teachers learned as a result of the programs
- Document impact on teaching and learning
Virginia’s public and private elementary and secondary schools, public school divisions, institutions of higher education, state agencies, and 501(c)(3) nonprofit organizations are invited to apply.
Applications are due on February 1, 2020 and will be evaluated on a competitive basis for programs that have been conducted during the past five years and have demonstrated positive results. Awardees will be recognized at a conference and awards ceremony on February 18 in Richmond, Virginia. Through a generous grant from Dominion Energy, the VMSC will support the travel and lodging of award recipients for each program recognized.
