PDF versionPDF version

The American Association of Petroleum Geologists' (AAPG) Foundation’s National Earth Science Teacher of the Year Award program, initiated in 1996, exists to recognize teachers who go beyond the textbook to incorporate applied geology into their lesson plans and "bring students an appreciation of how one field of science touches their everyday life." In support of this program, AGI provides each teacher an Earth Science Week kit and an Earth Magazine.
