Bob Thompson was a dedicated teacher, friend, and proponent of science and energy education.  His time at NEED enriched many, encouraged all, and improved the way we present and teach about energy in our curriculum and training workshops.  Bob was a good friend to many here at NEED and he and his spirit live on in our work.  Because of this, NEED has established the Bob Thompson Excellence in Energy Award that will be given each year to a teacher who exemplifies Bob’s childlike wonder of science and energy.  

The award includes a $1,000 cash grant to the teacher to use as he/she chooses in the classroom and an all-expenses paid trip to both NEED's Annual Youth Energy Conference and Awards in June and the National Energy Conference for Educators in July. 

2021 dates the recipient will need to be available to participate:
  • June 25-28, 2021 - NEED Youth Energy Conference and Awards – Washington, D.C.
  • July  18-22,  2021 - NEED National Energy Conference for Educators – Albuquerque, NM  

Applications must be received by February 1, 2021. 
Please note that the selected Bob Thompson Award winner will need to be able to attend the Youth Awards Ceremony on Monday, June 28th and the NEED National Energy Conference in July.  While both of these events are planned to be in-person, NEED is closely monitoring COVID-19 and will notify the winner of any changes made to these events.
