We put the T and E in STEM

2019- 2020 CTEEA Program of the Year and Teacher of the Year Information 

Wonderful things are happening in Technology/Engineering classrooms in Connecticut. CTEEA wants to recognize those individuals and groups who strive for excellence by providing their students with the best educational experiences. CTEEA/ITEEA Unified members qualify for consideration of these awards.

We are doing this through two award programs:  Teacher of the Year and Program of the Year. The top two finalists of Teacher of the Year will receive a free one year CTEEA /ITEEA Unified membership, and admission to the following year CTEEA conference.

The top two finalists of Program of the Year will receive a free one year CTEEA /ITEEA Unified membership, and admission to the following year CTEEA conference. The award recipient(s) will receive membership for up to 3 members of the department. 

CTEEA reserves the right to offer additional memberships in the category of Program of the Year due to extenuating circumstances. CTEEA also reserves the right to restrict or reduce offerings of recognition due to unforeseen circumstances or an interpretation contrary to the intent of the offerings. 

The recipients for the Teacher of the Year and Program of the Year awards will be eligible to submit an application to the ITEEA for consideration for their Teacher Excellent or the Program Excellence Awards. These awards will be presented at their annual conference. 

If you would like to recommend an individual or program for recognition, an invitation will be sent asking them to apply for an award. Please send the name and contact information of the nominated person or program to Gregory Kane, CTEEA Affiliate Representative, 27 Pitkin ST, Manchester, CT 06040, or to: gkane@aol.com.


I encourage you to apply for the awards without an invitation.  

All applications need to be submitted no later than Monday, October 22, 2019. The applications can be found at the CTEEA web site CTEEA.organd they are attached to this message.
