Thank you for helping to bring recognition to the important contributions Okaloosa County educators are making in the fields of science, math and technology.
TEAMS 3 awards are designed to inspire excellent teachers to continue leading students in STEM exploration, to empower them through recognition and reward of resource needs that encourage outstanding performance.
Please note that you are unrestricted in the number of nominations you make for different teachers, but multiple nominations of the same teacher WILL NOT impact their selection for an award. This nomination is not a popular vote to receive the TEAMS 3 award, but is instead a location to put forward the name of a deserving candidate for a special recognition award that helps to continue the momentum and inspired performance of excellent STEM educators. Deserving candidates are those teachers making strides to prepare students for STEM related careers by using innovative, hands- on learning techniques inside and outside the classroom.The program has been able to extend special prize awards through the generosity of sponsors such as Intuitive Research, Gulf Power and Beast Code! Thank you to each of these industry leaders advocating for excellence in STEM Education in our community!
Students, Parents, Peers, Administrators, Faculty and members of the Okaloosa community are encouraged to submit a nomination. Teachers are also invited and encouraged to nominate themselves. Prizes for TEAMS 3 awards may take the form of prize funds, educational equipment, participation in a conference or some other form of recognition and appreciation award. These TEAMS 3 prizes are not intended to serve as a grant.
