Appreciate an Educator!

Do you know an Indiana teacher that does an exemplary job of sharing nature with their students?  And, would you like to say thank you to this teacher by sending them a Kaufman Guide on behalf of you, your student, the IYBC, and the many kids' lives that they have touched?  

The IYBC wants to say thank you too!  And, to do this, we will be giving away 5 Kaufman Field Guides to Birds of North America at no charge to a selection of these amazing teachers.  All you have to do is send an email to with the:
  • teacher's name
  • school
  • school address
  • brief recommendation as to why you feel the teacher should receive the guide
  • Your name, email, address, and relationship with the teacher.

Entries are due February 28.  We will notify you of the status of your entry via email.  All Winning teachers will receive their field guide and a letter of congratulations in March 2015.

Please, only one entry per teacher.  And, only one recommendation per person.  Your name will be shared with the teacher that you (and your student if applicable) recommended them.  We will also share your recommendation with the teacher.  Teachers can only receive on guide max.  Only 5 guides will be given away.  Any nominations unrelated to the teacher's efforts of promoting nature will not be considered.  This offer is valid for Indiana teachers only.
