Nominate an outstanding school counselor by March 3

The South Dakota School Counseling Association award committee is accepting award nominations for school counselors until March 3.

Do you work with an outstanding school counselor? Would you like to recognize and nominate him or her for a South Dakota School Counselor Association Award? Nominators do not have to be SDSCA members.

Three of the four awards are specifically geared towards professional school counselors. All three recipients will receive a free SDSCA membership for 2017-18:

  • Orv Schmieding Award
  • Outstanding Professional School Counselor Award
  • Rising Star Award
The fourth award, the Special Contributions Award, is given to an individual or a group/organization who makes a positive contribution to the school counseling profession but isn't eligible for any of the three school counselor awards. Nominations are good for two years, as long as the individual or group is still eligible for the award.

Award nominations are due to Alyssa Krogstrand no later than March 3. Find more information about the individual awards on the SDSCA website.

Please send the completed nomination form and two letters of recommendation to: Alyssa.Krogstrand@k12.sd.us (or Alyssa Krogstrand, T.F Riggs High School, 1010 E. Broadway, Pierre, SD, 57501) or download and complete the application on Google docs.
