Full Story

Each year, CSTA and the Infosys Foundation USA host the CS Teaching Excellence Awards, which recognize 10 winners, five honorable mentions, and winners at the regional level. The CS Teaching Excellence Awards are designed to recognize outstanding teaching by K-12 computer science teachers. Winners excel in inspiring students to explore the computer science field, engaging students in learning rigorous standards-aligned computer science content, and broadening the participation of underrepresented students in computing. These awards were made possible by a grant from Infosys Foundation USA.
