Do you run a high-quality summer learning program that should be recognized nationally?
The National Summer Learning Association’s (NSLA) Excellence in Summer Learning Award and the new Founder’s Award recognize summer programs or models that demonstrate excellence in accelerating academic achievement and promoting healthy development for young people.
Just by submitting an application for one of these awards, your program will receive a feedback summary from NSLA outlining its strengths and areas for improvement. There is no cost to apply.
Award winners and finalists receive even more detailed feedback, similar to having a full CASP (Comprehensive Assessment of Summer Programs) assessment and a consultation phone call with the NSLA Program Quality Team.
As a Summer Learning Excellence Award Winner, your program will receive:
- Visibility at NSLA’s Summer Changes Everything™ national conference through general sessions presentations, and other speaking opportunities.
- National exposure through a NSLA press release during the busy summer media season.
- Peer learning opportunities through NSLA’s new affinity group structure.
Your program may even be featured in a future case study in NSLA presentations, publications, or reports that are widely distributed throughout the education field and staged on summerlearning.org.
The application deadline is Friday, Feb. 13, 2015. Visit summerlearning.org/SummerExcellence to learn more and apply today!
