The award made by the Entomological Foundation was awarded to Timothy Anderson of Princeton High School, Princeton, NJ and Richard W. Shevalier III of Voorhees High School, Glen Gardner, N.J., based on their demonstrated excellence in teaching science. Fellows will be teamed with a FMC scientist in their community and engage in entomological research for the summer where they will create a hands-on entomology program to implement in their classroom. Each fellow will present their results at the Entomological Society of America’s annual meeting in Austin, TX, in November. For more information, visit the Foundation’s website at www.entfdn.org.
