PM’s Prizes for Excellence in Science Teaching – nominations open 21 Feb

The PMs Prizes for Science

Do you know an amazing science, mathematics, or technology teacher?

Do they support, encourage, and inspire students to be their best?

Do they deserve to be recognised and honoured on the national stage?

If this sounds like a teacher you know, consider nominating them for the Prime Minister’s Prizes for Science Teaching.

Nominations open on the 21st of February 2018. This year the eligibility guidelines have been updated to include teachers who work part-time, and those in the mathematics and technology streams.

To be eligible to be nominated for a Science Teaching Prize a nominee must:

  • be an Australian citizen or permanent resident of Australia
  • have undertaken their teaching achievement for which they are nominated, in Australia
  • not be self-nominated
  • be a full time or part time staff member at a primary or secondary school and be active in teaching science, mathematics or technology in the classroom at the time of their nomination. For a secondary school teacher, science, mathematics or technology teaching must be a substantial part of their workload.

Check out the full criteria for all prizes at and think about who you might know that is eligible for nomination!

Submissions close on 26th of March at 5pm, so get cracking! Spread the word to your friends and colleagues so they can help in the search for our 2018 Prime Minister’s Prizes for Science Teaching recipients.
