Educator Recruitment, Preparation, and Recognition
New Jersey Distinguished Student Teacher Awards
Since 1985, the Presidents of New Jersey's teacher training institutions have been invited to submit the dossiers of their three most outstanding prospective teachers into competition for this award. This annual award publicly recognizes the year's fifteen top graduates of teacher education programs in New Jersey's colleges and universities. An independent panel of esteemed New Jersey educators evaluates these dossiers to select the award recipients.
