2022 Teacher of the Year

The Lexington Soil and Water Conservation District will recognize two local teachers, one from grades K-6 and one from grades 7-12 for their accomplishments in conservation education.  These accomplishments can be either inside or outside of the classroom.  The teachers selected locally will be awarded $250 each and will be entered into the statewide SCACD (South Carolina Association of Conservation Districts) competition.


Criteria to be considered is how teachers have incorporated conservation into their curriculum in the way of demonstrations, exhibits, outdoor classrooms,gardens, bulletin boards, and plantings to improve school grounds. This award is based on a well-rounded conservation program. Submissions that describe only one or two activities (i.e., recycling) will not rate as highly as those that contain a variety of conservation education activities in their curriculum.


Application forms should be submitted to the Lexington Soil and Water Conservation District at 123 Park Road, Lexington, SC 29072, by close of business (4:30 p.m.) on April 15, 2022.

A selection committee of conservation leaders will select the winning teachers to be specially recognized at the Soil & Water Conservation District’s Annual Banquet on May 5, 2022.
