On behalf of the North American Colleges and Teachers of Agriculture (NACTA), thank you for taking the time and effort to nominate someone for one or more of the NACTA awards for excellence in post-secondary instruction in agriculture. One of the central purposes of NACTA is to recognize those individuals whose efforts represent the very best in agricultural higher education. Thus, NACTA seeks to inspire all of us to achieve the highest levels of excellence. At the same time, NACTA seeks to encourage these colleagues to share with us their methods of achieving excellence. ·The nominator does not have to be from the same institution as the nominee, but the nominator should contact the nominee's Department Chair as a professional courtesy.
New instructions: Submit all award nominations online at http://nactaawards.expressacademic.org/login.php
For each nominee, upload one single PDF file that includes all nomination materials (all documents, teaching evaluations, and other relevant documents) at the website by 11:59 PM Eastern Time on March 1st.
We will only accept one PDF file of application materials for each nomination, and the website will not combine your materials into one file if you upload multiple files for each nominee. Evaluations of all nominees will be conducted through the website and neither the Teacher Recognition Committee nor the evaluators will be able to put multiple files together for one nominee.
New for 2013: Each award nominee in all award categories is asked to submit...
(1) a 150 word bio,
(2) a professional picture of themselves, and
(3) a short story of their funniest moment when teaching
...as a single Word document attached as an additional file when submitting their packet. Please save the file as the nominee's full name. We may use this information when developing the Awards Booklet or when Dr. Fuhrman presents the award on stage at the NACTA Conference.
Deadline: Nomination materials for all awards (except Distinguished Educator, Murray Brown, and the Teaching Award of Merit) must be uploaded at the website by 11:59 PM Eastern Time on March 1.
