PAEMST is the highest award given by the U.S. Government to kindergarten through 12th grade teachers of mathematics and science, including computer science.

Educators in those fields are assessed by a panel on a state and national level before being recommended as nominees.

Teachers are selected based on their distinction in the classroom and dedication to improving STEM education.
