scholarships & awards




Teachers who make math or science fun, help to encourage and inspire students to succeed academically. At various points in our lives we encounter remarkable teachers. They “make school cool!” The APEGGA Teacher Awards program recognizes these exceptional teachers for their enthusiasm and dedication.

Students, parents, principals, school staff, and teacher colleagues can submit nominations for the 14 APEGGA Teacher Awards presented throughout the province, annually. Group nominations are encouraged. At an event held in their honour, each award recipient is presented with a certificate and $2,000 to be used at their discretion for professional development, school equipment, resource materials, web site development, teaching aids, or other tools to improve teaching and student learning.

With more than 51,000 members, the Association of Professional Engineers, Geologists and Geophysicists of Alberta (APEGGA) is the largest professional association in Alberta. The Association serves the public interest by regulating the practices of engineering and geoscience in Alberta, by providing leadership for our professions, and by upholding our members in their professional practices.

APEGGA works cooperatively with educators to spark an interest among Alberta students in math and science by offering classroom presentations demonstrating math and science principles, participating in career events, judging science projects, providing information on engineering, geology and geophysics careers, and sponsoring awards and scholarships for students and teachers who excel in math and science.
