Awards

Explore our Environmental Literacy Program awards and past competitions.

Working at national, regional, and local levels, our funded projects educate and inspire people to use Earth systems science to improve ecosystem stewardship and increase resilience to environmental hazards. Education plays a critical role in achieving NOAA’s mission and vision. To make the best social, economic, and environmental decisions, individuals should have the ability to understand scientific processes, consider uncertainty, and reason about the ways human and natural systems interact (NOAA's Education Strategic Plan, 2015–2035). Our grants support formal (K-12) and informal education projects that cultivate these skillsets among diverse audiences.
