Sustainable Economic Development Initiative (SEDI) of Northern Arizona
Awards to Arizona PreK-12 teachers or groups of teachers to recognize sustainability education efforts. The purpose of the award program is to honor teachers for educational materials and programs that promote sustainability in the areas of environment, economy, and social development. Teachers in Apache, Coconino, Mohave, Navajo, and Yavapai Counties may apply.
The purpose of this award is to encourage and recognize the development and implementation of innovative educational approaches in all disciplines (e.g. math, English, history, sciences, economics, etc.) that instill in students the importance, value and practicality of local environmental, social and economic aspects of sustainability. Note that this is not a grant. It is an award, a recognition with no strings attached.
The lesson, unit or project must have a clear connection to the environmental, social and economic aspects of sustainability as reflected by the general goals of SEDI (see Meet SEDI). The award will be based on innovative approaches, actions taken, practical applications, and sustainable outcomes. The innovative educational approach will demonstrate practical application that empowers action at the local level. The project must be aligned with the AZ Dept. of Education Standards.
Applications will be evaluated within the following groups (though awards may not necessarily correspond to this categorization):
