PIAEE and PEYA 2016

Environmental & Science Education
Edward Hessler PEYA Award
The U. S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) and the White House Council on Environmental Quality recognized 18 teachers and 63 students from across the country for outstanding contributions to environmental education and stewardship.

You may read the press release which has a link to the Presidential Innovative Award for Environmental Education (for teachers who were honored) and the Presidential Environmental Youth Award (for students who were honored) here.

There is a whole lot going on in schools in that wonderful and wonder-filled teaching-learning triangle: teachers, students and the "stuff" that brings them together.  The "stuff" may be thought of as curriculum but when you read these descriptions you will get an idea of its richness.

The announcements were made on August 16, 2016 and had it not been for a colleague I might never have known.
