The Trump Master Teacher Award
Since 2012, the Trump Foundation has awarded a NIS 100,000 prize for excellence in teaching to math and science teachers who exemplify excellent teaching in their own careers. The winners are selected by a committee comprised of skilled teachers, experts in teacher training, and senior Education Ministry officials on the basis of the criteria for excellence in teaching delineated by the prize committee.

Below are the criteria by which the committee selects the winner of the Trump Master Teacher Award. We welcome your comments on these criteria and invite you to compare them to the criteria for excellent teaching used in other parts of the world.
