(Salt Lake City-AP) -- Scott Crump of Bingham High School in South Jordan is Utah's 2003-to-2004 Teacher of the Year.

Crump, who is 51, has taught history and political science for 26 years. He accepted the award yesterday at a ceremony before a crowd of about 100 colleagues at the Hilton in downtown Salt Lake City.

He was part of a group of 18 vying for the honor, chosen from the state's 22 thousand public school teachers.

This school year, Crump will go to Washington to meet with President Bush and will go to Space Camp in Alabama. He also will receive computer equipment, said Mark Peterson, coordinator of Utah's Teacher of the Year Program.

The title has been awarded since 1952.
