The Geoscience Education Division of the Geological Society of America sponsors the Biggs Award, which recognizes innovative and effective teaching of Earth Sciences among early career faculty (10 years or less of full-time teaching). Nominations  are due each year on February 15. We are soliciting nominations from across the Earth Sciences - nominees and nominators do not need to be members of the Division in order to encourage recognition of an outstanding colleague.

The nomination process requires letters of support from colleagues and students as well as a teaching philosophy from the nominee. The award details and the nomination process can be accessed at: We look forward to hearing from you!
