The purpose of the NACTA Graduate Student Teaching Award is to recognize and reward graduate students
who excel as teachers in the agricultural disciplines.
 
The award is for NACTA graduate student members who are involved in classroom instruction.
 
The NACTA Graduate Student Teaching Award is a criterion-based award and is reviewed by a committee of NACTA members.
To qualify for the award, a graduate student must have been involved in classroom teaching for a minimum of one year.
Criteria included in the evaluation are the graduate student's teaching philosophy, statement of support from supervising
faculty, evaluations submitted by students and an administrative officer, a self-evaluation, involvement in teaching outside the
classroom, and a description of the candidate's specific teaching involvement.
