Loeb Prize

Carol B. and Jerome T. Loeb established the Loeb Prize in 1995 in partnership with the Saint Louis Science Center. The Loeb Prize, which provides more than $7,000 to five classroom teachers, is designed to reward and recognize math and science teachers who significantly enhance student performance. It is based on the premise that effective teaching is the cornerstone of a quality educational experience. In creating this award, the Loebs, together with the Science Center, seek to elevate public appreciation of all teachers.
