In 1999, the Alliance initiated the Exemplary Science Teacher Awards program. The annual event was designed to honor the efforts of eight teachers from Brevard County who demonstrate best practices in the area of science instruction. Through this award the SCSEA hopes to encourage excellent educators to remain in the teaching profession.

In the 2005 - 2006, school year, the SCSEA started the Aspiring Scientist Award. This program acknowledges the accomplishments of six elementary grade students who demonstrate promise but might otherwise have gone unnoticed. The aim is to encourage these students to continue their endeavors in science.
