Dorothy LaLonde Stout Lecture

About the Lecture and Award

The AGU Education Section is proud to announce the Dorothy LaLonde Stout Lecture, a new named lecture and award for 2021!

This award is named for Dorothy LaLonde Stout to recognize her extraordinary life-long contributions to Earth science education. She was a dedicated parent, revered educator, exemplary leader, and respected scientist, and her contributions to the geoscience education community were wide and varied. We could think of no better person to honor as the namesake of our new award.

Scheduled to be presented for the first time at the 2021 AGU Fall Meeting, The Dorothy LaLonde Stout Lecture will recognize significant contributions in Earth and space science education and public outreach by an individual or team. The lecture will be presented annually and recognizes an individual or team with outstanding contributions in the area of Earth and/or space science pre-K through 16+ education and/or public outreach. The honored individual or the leader of the honored team will be within 10 years of receiving his/her/their Ph.D. or highest equivalent terminal degree.

In addition to the lecture at the AGU Fall Meeting, the award includes:
  • lecture certificate/plaque
  • recognition
    • at the AGU Fall Meeting
    • in Eos
    • in the Education Section newsletter
  • an invitation to present the lecture at the AGU Fall Meeting
  • a complimentary ticket to the Education Section business meeting at the AGU Fall Meeting.

The Education Section leadership team would like to thank all the Education Section members who sent in suggestions for people to honor with the name of our first section award, and the team would also like to thank the AGU Honors and Recognition Committee for approving this award application. Much more information will be shared with section members in the coming weeks and months.
