Golden Apple award deadline for faculty mentors draws near

Do you know a faculty member who is an outstanding mentor to dental students or junior faculty interested in academic careers?

The ADA's Golden Apple Award for Inspiring Careers in Dental Education is a unique opportunity to recognize faculty mentors. The ADA encourages members and dental societies to nominate members who are deserving of this award by April 1.

In addition to a Golden Apple trophy, the recipient receives support from the Council on Dental Education and Licensure to attend the ADA's 2013 Annual Session.

Entries must include a letter of nomination; letters of support from students, faculty and administrators; and the candidate's CV. They are due April 1.

For information and the nomination form, visit ADA.org/goldenapple.aspx. Questions may be directed to Rosemary Monehen at tempcdel@ada.org. Entries can be sent to Esperanza Gonzalez at gonzaleze@ada.org.

In addition to the education award, there are 12 other GAA categories for societies to showcase programs and activities produced between June 1, 2012, and May 31 of this year. Categories and forms are available at ADA.org/goldenapple. Entries can be submitted electronically anytime after May 1 up to June 3.
