Established in 2003, this award recognizes volunteers who further develop students' understanding and experience in math and science by helping teachers use the A World In Motion (AWIM) materials in the classroom. The nominee must be a volunteer that has assisted a teacher integrating the AWIM program in the classroom and must have participated in classroom activities during the current academic year. Nominees do not have to be professional engineers. College and/or high school students who have served as volunteers and non-engineers are eligible for the award as well as professional engineers.
The award honors Dr. William G. Agnew, retired from General Motors Research Laboratories. His concept for establishing the AWIM program and his support of AWIM since its inception deserves recognition by this award.
The award consists of a framed certificate and an honorarium. It is presented at either an SAE Section meeting or at the school where the engineer volunteered.
