Advocate of the Year Awards


Advocate of the Year

This award is presented each year at the Legislative Workshop. The Advocate of the Award is an annual award presented to recognize an education advocate or advocates who have excelled in grassroots advocacy.


ASBA Awards

Each year, ASBA honors individual school board members, as well as entire governing boards:

  • for efforts toward improvement;
  • as incentive for voluntary board member in-service training;
  • to promote the idea of better boardsmanship; and
  • for service to public school in the form of advocacy.

Awards are also presented to districts, schools and teachers for excellence in student achievement.
