Meritorious Teaching Award in Herpetology

In cooperation with the other professional societies for herpetology in North America, HL has helped establish the Meritorious Teaching Award in Herpetology. This award recognizes superior teaching effectiveness and mentoring of students in the area of herpetology, and provides student members of the herpetological societies the opportunity to honor individuals who have made significant contributions to herpetological education, in either the classroom or mentoring student research endeavors. The award is presented annually at the Joint Meetings of Ichthyologists & Herpetologists, and includes a commemorative plaque and a $500 cash prize.
