NAAE Awards      
NAAE maintains an awards program to recognize the accomplishments of our many talented and dedicated members. The following awards require state judging. Applicants must be NAAE members.
 
Ideas Unlimited Award - The Ideas Unlimited contest is designed to give members an opportunity to exchange classroom, SAE, leadership, and other teaching ideas. The idea may be original or borrowed. Each application should specify how the idea was used by the applicant and how the idea could help others in their teaching. Access award application instructions here

Teacher Mentor Award - If you ask agriculture teachers what motivated them to enter and stay in the teaching profession, predominately they will attribute their decision to another agriculture teacher who encouraged them. This award program provides beginning teachers a way to say thank you to the experienced teachers who have influenced them. This award has an online application, which means you will have to log in to the NAAE website to access the application form. Access award application instructions here

"Teachers Turn the Key" Award - Agricultural education is continually faced with a shortage of qualified teachers. Unless those who have been trained enter and remain in the profession for a period of several years, the shortage of qualified teachers will prevail. As a means of encouraging young teachers to remain in the profession and to encourage and recognize participation in professional activities, NAAE offers the Teachers Turn the Key Scholarship. 

NAAE members who are in their second, third or fourth year of teaching at the time they apply are eligible for this award. (When the awards are presented at the subsequent NAAE convention, the scholarship recipients will be in their third, fourth or fifth year of teaching.) Applicants must be a member of NAAE during the year of application (2017-2018) and be a member of NAAE at the time of the convention at which they receive the scholarship (2018-2019). Applicants must not have attended the NAAE convention previously. All state winners must agree to attend the entire NAAE convention.

Teachers Turn the Key is an online application, which means you will have to log in to the NAAE website to access the application form. Access award application instructions here.
