CLINTON State School teacher Ruth Armitage has been recognised for her contribution to science education throughout the school.

Mrs Armitage was one of 12 Queenslanders presented with the Peter Doherty Outstanding Primary and Middle Phase of Learning Teachers of Science Award for 2005 at a function in Brisbane last week.

Minister for Education and The Arts Rod Welford, who presented the awards, congratulated Ruth and the other recipients for their efforts.

Mr Welford said the awards fostered the growth of science education in Queensland.

He said it was an opportunity to promote science as a viable and interesting career option for students.

"The Peter Doherty Awards are open to students and teachers in state and non-state schools and were selected by a panel of working Queensland scientists and science educators,'' he said.
