     Alaska and the nation lost a science education leader in October of 2012. To continue to honor her service to encourage and strengthen science literacy throughout the country, colleagues may nominate a science educator whose work is primarily carried out in Alaska and who exemplifies Emma's knowledge, enthusiasm, and commitment. This recognition comes with a $500 cash award to be applied to professional development, particularly travel to the biannual Alaska Math/Science Conference, where a formal citation and a suitable token of appreciation for the outstanding service rendered by the recipient will be given. The next Conference is in September in Fairbanks.

     The first recipient was granted the award in 2007. Since then, recipients have included Cheryl Cooper, Elena Sparrow, Ray Barnhardt, Kenji Yoshikawa, and Pam Randles.

   The award is designed to recognize Alaska educators who have made extraordinary contributions to the advancement of science education in the sciences and science teaching.  Each award consists of up to $500 to travel to the biannual Alaska Math/Science Conference, where a formal citation and a suitable token of appreciation for the outstanding service rendered by the recipient will be given.

      Recipient does not have to be a member of ASTA and a person could nominate him/herself.
