Nominate outstanding biology teachers

Congratulations to last year’s Outstanding Biology Teacher Award recipient Lisa Fuccello from Brandon Valley High School!

The Outstanding Biology Teacher Award honors teachers of the life sciences. Nominated teachers need not be full-time life science teachers; rather, they must be consistently teaching some amount of life science.

OBTA recipients are awarded a plaque and a $1,000 stipend sponsored by Sanford Health. The award is sponsored by the National Association of Biology Teachers, and each state's awardees are honored at the NABT National Conference each year.

To nominate a teacher, email the following information to the SD OBTA Director Jeff Peterson; jeff.peterson@k12.sd.us.

  1. Name of Nominee
  2. School
  3. Email address
  4. Phone number
  5. Your name and email should Jeff need to contact you.
After receiving the nomination, the nominee will be notified and encouraged to start the application process. A committee reviews applications in the spring and selects the next OBT.
