Supervisor & Advocate of the Year

We recognize that individuals do not necessarily need to be a school counselor to support and advance the profession, which is why we encourage our members to nominate for Supervisor/Administrator and Advocate of the Year. Individuals who have shown exemplary support of school counseling services, outstanding promotion of school counseling services, implementation of new/additional school counseling services and/or improvement of existing school counseling services are excellent candidates for these awards.

Supervisor/Administrator of the Year

The Supervisor/Administrator Award recognizes an administrator, coordinator, director or supervisor whose leadership has shown outstanding support and impact in the school counseling field on a local, state, or national level.

Advocate of the Year

The Advocate Award recognizes a person (not necessarily in a supervisory position) or organization whose advocacy of school counseling has made an impact on a local, state or national level. The Advocate of the Year nominee should NOT be actively employed as a school counselor or as a supervisor/administrator over school counselors or school counseling services at the school, district, or state levels. (Examples of appropriate nominations include parents, community members, school board members, etc.)
