Nominate outstanding school counselors by March 15

The South Dakota School Counselor Association Awards committee is accepting nominations for outstanding school counselors and others making contributions to the school counseling profession.

Three of the five awards are specifically geared toward professional school counselors. The recipients of the following three awards will receive a free SDSCA membership for 2019-20:

  • Orv Schmieding Award
  • Outstanding Professional School Counselor Award
  • Rising Star Award
Other awards:
  • Special Contributions Award: given to an individual or 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.
  • Administrator Advocacy Award: intended to recognize a school administrator who helps implement a comprehensive school counseling plan and supports school counselor efforts as an advocate for the school counseling profession.
Award nominations are due by March 15. The awards will be presented at the South Dakota School Counselor Association conference in May in Sioux Falls.
