Outstanding Transportation Educator Award
The Western District Outstanding Transportation Educator Award recognizes an individual who demonstrates extraordinary creativity in teaching, takes exceptional measures to spark student interest in the transportation profession, provides unwavering encouragement for student endeavors, or shows unequaled service to ITE in the past year.
If you would like to nominate an educator: (1) complete the nomination form, (2) attach a narrative, no more than two pages in length, addressing their contributions in the areas of teaching, research and ITE service (use the questions on the nomination form), and (3) return the nomination to the Career Guidance Chair.
