Centenary of Federation Teaching Awards in Chemistry
The RACI offers a series of annual awards for the recognition and reward of outstanding excellence in the teaching of chemistry in Australia at both primary and secondary school levels.
The award process is two tiered with the branches offering a Primary and Secondary teaching Award on the basis of one each per state annually, with applicants in the Northern Territory being considered with South Australia and those in the Australian Capital Territory with New South Wales.
Any Branch may refer exceptional awardees to the Board for national consideration.
The Board may select one primary and one secondary national award winner from the candidates submitted by the Branches.
Candidates whose teaching is only partly chemical and teachers of general science (with some chemistry) are also encouraged to apply. All applicants must be RACI members (MRACI and upwards) for a minimum of 1 year.
