VASCD Awards 2017

2017 VASCD Awards: Learn. Teach. Lead.

Learn: The VASCD Teacher-In-Action Grant

The Teacher-in-Action Grant is designed to bring ideas born at our conference into practice in classrooms and schools in the Commonwealth. Applicants identify opportunities to grow professionally as they develop and implement innovative practices in their classrooms and share their findings and reflections with colleagues across the Commonwealth. Up to 3 grants for up to $1,000 each may be awarded.

Interested teachers should attend the Teacher-In-Action session at Annual Conference on December 1.

 Teach: VASCD Impact Awards

Impact Awards are presented to educators who consistently challenge themselves and others to learn, grow and achieve at the highest possible levels. They may be teachers, building-level leaders, or central office staff. Whether they work in classrooms each day or support those who do, their work exemplifies great teaching. They serve as catalysts, engaging students and/or colleagues in collaborative work. They are learners whose work reflects best-practice research and evidence. They influence, impact, and inspire others. Up to 8 Impact Awards are presented each year.

The online application form is here. Detailed guidelines and directions for nominations are posted here.

Lead: VASCD Leadership Award

The highly regarded VASCD Leadership Award is presented to one Virginia educator for outstanding leadership in curriculum, instruction and/or assessment. Nominees are those leaders whose understanding of and dedication to best instructional practice is reflected both in the nominee’s own work and in the work of those (s)he leads.
