Who does the nominating for these awards? And who submits the paperwork? Is it the nominator or nominee who does the paperwork (essay, etc.)?
Carolyn Mohr
01:30:31
Great questions. We will ask Paul at next Q & A
Michelle Butler, NStA Awards Staff
01:32:56
You may nominate a colleague. For the Carlton, the nominator provides the entry materials.
Carolyn Mohr
01:33:24
Thank you, Michelle.
Carolyn Mohr
01:34:46
Feel free to put your questions in the chat. Michelle is answering questions as we go, and Paul will answer some too.

01:35:35
Wow! There are so many awesome sounding opportunities for teachers!
Carolyn Mohr
01:36:34
The paperwork?

01:36:34
Thank you all for attending, my friend and colleague, Amanda Upton, will be happy to continue responding to your questions this evening. She managed NSTA awards for many years. Please remember that you may email awards@nsta.org after this webinar.

B and D
Amanda Upton, NSTA
01:37:01
Yes, I'm ready to answer questions.
Yaressy Hernandez
01:37:27
The most challenging would probably be B. Maybe not knowing how to start.
Stephanie Ramos
01:37:32
Finding the time, working full time & going to school taking 15 hours each semester.
Marie Pool - Western Technology Center
01:37:34
Effective narrative and time.
Ms. Neilssen
01:37:34
When we nominate a new teacher for the new teacher awards they need to already be members of nest?
Michelle Butler, NStA Awards Staff
01:37:37
They stood by us throughout the pandemic and the cancellation of conferences.
Tina Hovance
01:37:42
Do have tips for writing the effective narratives?
Amanda Upton, NSTA
01:37:47
The award requirements are posted on the NSTA teacher awards page, which gives more detailed information.
Michelle Butler, NStA Awards Staff
01:37:51
Tip, don't wait until the last minute. Start today
Michelle Butler, NStA Awards Staff
01:38:10
I need Amanda's help :)
Amanda Upton, NSTA
01:38:51
For the MPS award you do need to be a member.
Amanda Upton, NSTA
01:39:18
It is good to have a colleague review your narrative.
Amanda Upton, NSTA
01:39:40
There should be exemplars on the awards page to view also.
Tina Hovance
01:40:10
Is there a scoring rubric provided for each award besides a list of criteria?
Amanda Upton, NSTA
01:40:26
Each award has a tab called award details. Review those prior to working on your application.
Amanda Upton, NSTA
01:40:42
Yes, there are scoring guides for each award.
Amanda Upton, NSTA
01:41:03
You can start and stop your application, as long as you save your work.
Marie Pool - Western Technology Center
01:41:12
Do the focused lesson need to be an original lesson plan or is it more important to focus on how effectively the students are engaged/learning?
Tina Hovance
01:41:43
What are some examples of what distinguishes the winners from others? It seems difficult to distinguish between applicants.
Tina Hovance
01:42:04
If you don't win, do the applicants receive feedback on how to improve their application?
Amanda Upton, NSTA
01:42:14
Your lesson plan should be more than a plan from a commercial company. Individualize it for your needs and include that type of lesson.
Amanda Upton, NSTA
01:43:45
Follow the criteria.
Carolyn Mohr
