Helen G. and Allan D. Cruickshank Education Award

The Helen G. and Allan D. Cruickshank Education Awards are given to projects that expand and enhance knowledge of Florida’s native birds during primary and secondary education. This award is generally given to a Florida primary or secondary teacher to create or enhance teaching of classes on the scientific study of birds, or to provide support for continuing education for teachers. The applicant should provide a two-page written description of the proposed use of the award, a time schedule, and a budget. Applicants should send three copies of their proposal and a curriculum vitae to: Adam Kent 222 SE 12th St., Gainesville, FL 32641.

Applications must be received by September 1st of each year and the recipient(s) will be announced at the fall meeting of the Florida Ornithological Society.
