Wendell G Mohling Foundation Award change!!
The Mohling Foundation has been giving an award amount of $500 since 2006. This is considered "incentive" money to assist in funding a K-12 Kansas science teacher to attend an NSTA conference of their choice, during the school year in which they are selected as the recipient.
Beginning next year, we will award $700 to one K-12 Kansas science teacher to use toward attending an NSTA conference of their choice. While we know this still is inadequate to fund the expense, we consider it as incentive money to encourage a school district to do the "right" thing and pay the balance of the cost. School districts need to invest in the success of their teachers and in 90% of the cases involving our winners, the districts have indeed risen to the challenge.
