SAN ANTONIO (KTSA News) — There’s something “fishy” about this contest.
SEA LIFE Aquarium’s San Antonio location is opening in February and they’re hoping students and educators will dive in to help their favorite Science Teacher swim in with a free lifetime pass.
SEA LIFE is accepting nominations for their “Texas Science Teacher of the Year” award.
They’re looking for Texas science teachers ranging from grades Pre-K through 12th grade.
“Conservation is an important part of SEA LIFE Aquarium’s mission, and part of that mission involves education. In preparation for our opening in February 2020, we wanted to take time to recognize the educators who are teaching the next generation about the magnificent ecosystems that surround us,” said Jeremy Aguillen, General Manager of SEA LIFE San Antonio. “Our hope is that in conducting this contest, we’ll be able to provide them tools that they can take in classroom and be a support system for educating their future students.”
Students and educators can nominate their favorite Science Teacher online.
In order to be eligible, the educator must currently teach science to students in any grade from Pre-k through 12th grade in the state of Texas, and must be a full-time teacher.
They’ll take nominations until December 8th.
Five winning teachers gets a free lifetime pass to SEA LIFE Aquarium and a special “behind the scenes” tour of the San Antonio location before it opens to the public.
The winner will be announced in mid-December.
