In 2017, MEEC is proud to sponsor its twelfth annual MEEC “Teacher of the Year” Awards. Three winners will be selected to receive this prestigious honor; one first place winner, who will receive $500 in cash and a plaque, and two MEEC “Teachers of Excellence” recipients, who will each receive $300 in cash and plaques. This year’s awards banquet will be held on May 4, 2017 at 6 PM at the beautiful Spring Valley Lake Country Club in Victorville, California.
To this end, we are soliciting nominations from principals, teachers, parents or community members of an educator from your school that you feel would be most worthy of this prestigious recognition. We are looking for an educator who makes continuous and enduring contributions to environmental education, demonstrates capacity for creating and implementing successful environmental activities, shows creative approaches, promotes individual and societal environmental responsibility, and encourages youth to make informed decisions about environmental issues.
Eligible teachers must teach at a school within MEC’s boundaries. MEEC’s boundaries consist of the High Desert portion of San Bernardino County, the Palo Verde Valley of Riverside County and the High Desert region of North Los Angeles County, including the cities of Lancaster and Palmdale.
Please take the time to formulate a brief letter describing your nominee and his/her contributions to environmental education. Please mail your submission to MEEC, 14306 Park Ave, Victorville, CA 92392. Letters may also be faxed to (760) 241-6271 or emailed to firstname.lastname@example.org.
