Nominations Open: NASBE’s 2020 Awards and Chair-elect
NASBE is pleased to open nominations for its 2020 national awards and board officers.
Each year, the NASBE recognizes distinguished leaders for their contributions to improving education for all children. Two awards are given to individuals: the “Policy Leader of the Year” and “Friend of Education” awards. Up to three “Distinguished Service” awards are given to state board members from across the country for their outstanding contributions to education. The Board of Directors may also designate a “David A. Kysilko Award” winner, an individual who has demonstrated an unwavering commitment to NASBE values and service of state boards of education. Winners will be nationally recognized at NASBE’s Virtual Annual Conference in October 2020.
Learn more about the NASBE awards and the nominations process here. The deadline for all award submissions has been extended to August 9, 2020. Please contact Sharon Cannon with questions about award nominations.
NASBE members will elect just one officer this year: chair-elect. The election will occur during the virtual Delegate Assembly. If you wish to nominate someone for this important office, please refer to the process and forms here. The deadline for nominations is September 9, 2020.
