Annual Nassau STANYS Awards Dinner
The mission of the Science Teachers Association of New York State (STANYS) is “to work with educators and communities to provide opportunities for all students to participate in and learn science.”
The Nassau Section of STANYS hosts annual workshops where both new and experienced teachers hear the latest from our Subject Area Representatives and other experienced professionals.
In partnership with the Suffolk Section of STANYS, we have encouraged participation in scientific research through the Long Island Science Congress. This annual science fair has over a thousand student participants from grades 7-12. Many of our teacher members serve as judges and organizers at this popular event.
At the Annual Nassau STANYS Science Awards Dinner, STANYS will honor one outstanding senior from each member high school. This outstanding student will be presented with a plaque commemorating the honor. Each recipient may also select one teacher to share the evening. Student honorees and their selected teachers will be our guests at the dinner.
In addition to the Science Awards Dinner, by participating in the event each member school is entitled to nominate one elementary, one intermediate, and one high school teacher for consideration as Nassau STANYS Outstanding Teacher. If chosen by the Nassau Executive Committee to receive the award, the teacher will be our guest at the Science Awards Dinner.
We thank you in advance for your support of our science students and science education in Nassau County.
