AMSA Student Awards Program

 

AMSA Student Teaching “Cleaver” Award

AMSA Student Teaching “Cleaver” Award:

A meat cleaver is resilient and designed to break through soft bones and cartilage. Graduate teaching assistants are encouraged to be “cleavers”, by being resilient in teaching abilities, breaking through to students and enhancing their knowledge. The tough metal and thick blade of a cleaver is unique and more durable compared to other knives. Graduate students are expected to be durable through their own obligations, and above all to create a unique learning experience for students.

Purpose:

The AMSA Student Board of Directors would like to recognize one master's and one PhD student's excellence in teaching and assisting faculty with meat, animal, or food science courses.

Eligibility:

1. The nominee must have been an MS or PhD graduate student and an active teacher or teaching assistant during the 2020 calendar year.
2. The nominee must have been an AMSA member during the time they were teaching.
3. Previous winners of this award are not eligible to compete again in the same level (MS/PhD)
