MILWAUKEE (AP) -- Two Wisconsin teachers are receiving presidential awards as outstanding math and science teachers for kindergarten through sixth grade.
President Barack Obama is recognizing 85 math and science teachers nationwide. They'll receive the Presidential Award for Excellence in Mathematics and Science Teaching.
The Wisconsin winners were Green Bay math teacher Patricia Agee-Aguayo and Franklin science teacher John Hushek.
An initial selection process takes place at the state level. The winners are then chosen by a panel of scientists, mathematicians and educators.
The winners receive $10,000 from the National Science Foundation. They'll also receive a free trip to Washington, D.C., later this year. The trip will include an awards ceremony along with visits with members of Congress and the Obama administration.
