Last call for education awards

Nominations for the 2013 Crown Circle and Mervin K. Strickler Awards for excellence in aerospace education close on May 31.

The Crown Circle is presented as “Evidence of extraordinary accomplishment in a leadership role in Aerospace Education.” Its recipients over the 30 year history of the award have brought aerospace education to millions of people – young and old alike. Prior recipients include classroom teachers, school administrators, college administrators/educators, aviation pioneers, and industry and government leaders.

The Mervin K. Strickler Award is named in honor of Merv, who established the platinum standard in aviation and space education leadership. He devoted his entire career in government, first with the Civil Air Patrol and then the FAA in stimulating interest, innovating programming, and developing international leadership in aerospace education. The focus of this award is on life-time leadership and advocacy of aerospace education nationally and internationally.

Nomination forms are available here.

The Crown Circle award will be presented in the summer and the Strickler Award in the fall.
