Edyth May Sliffe Awards

The Edyth May Sliffe Awards for Distinguished Mathematics Teaching in Middle School and High School are given annually to teachers of middle and high school mathematics teachers who have done outstanding work in motivating students in mathematics through participation in one of the MAA AMC competitions.

What is awarded? More than 20 award winners receive recognition from the MAA AMC program as well as a $500 stipend.
Who can be nominated? Nominations must be middle or high school teachers that also serve as the key person who prepares students for AMC participation. Administrators or instructors who are not teachers in a public or private school are not eligible.
Who can submit a nomination? To be considered as a potential nominee, a teacher must be nominated by at least two individuals. The nominators may be:

  • A student, parent, fellow teacher or associate, including school volunteers, or a school administrator. (If two people co-sign this type of nomination it counts as two nominations).
  • You can nominate yourself as long as you have a co-signer (self-nominations even with a co-signer only count as one nomination).

What criteria is the committee looking for? It is most important to share the effect the teacher has had on students’ interest and participation in mathematics through preparation for the AMC contests. Providing examples of additional evidence can strengthen a nomination letter such as:

  • Comparing scores of past teams from the same school or with schools of similar type, to show improvement;
  • Increases in AMC competitions participation or in the number of qualifiers for invitational contests such as the AIME or USAMO; and
  • Encouragement of mathematical training outside the classroom through math clubs, coaching students, providing extra mathematical training materials, etc.

How can I submit a nomination? Nomination is by submission through the electronic form which will be available on this page in November, 2016. Deadline for nominations for 2015-2016 awards was May 15.
