At the State level, coordinators convene selection committees, which include prominent mathematicians, scientists, mathematics/science education researchers, district level personnel, and classroom teachers. These committees select up to three finalists from each award category (mathematics or science) for recognition at the state level and forward these applications to NSF for national review.
To learn more about the finalists in your state, you can do the following:
- Contact your State Coordinator: State Coordinators organize selection for their states and can provide more information about your local finalists. Search for a State Coordinator.
- Visit State Coordinator Leadership Organizations' websites: The state level review process is coordinated by Association of State Supervisors of Mathematics (ASSM) and Council of State Science Supervisors (CSSS). Visit those pages to learn more and find listings of recent finalists.
