The Richard C. Bartlett Environmental Education Award is given annually to an outstanding middle or high school teacher who successfully integrates environmental education into their curriculum and engages students in interdisciplinary solutions to environmental challenges. The award recognizes an educator who can serve as an inspiration and model for others.
The 2012 Richard C. Bartlett Environmental Education Award will be awarded/has been awarded to a high school teacher for grades 9-12. Because middle and high school teachers may face different challenges in their teaching on the environment, the award alternates between middle and high school teachers each year. So the 2013 award will be offered to middle school teachers.
The Richard C. Bartlett Environmental Education Award winner will receive $5,000 and two merit winners will receive $750 each.
