Various Service-Learning Awards
[posted from National CBO Service-Learning listserv]
Nominations are being accepted through February 2, 2004 for three awards honoring outstanding leadership and inspiration to the service-learning field:
*The State Farm Practitioner Leadership Award recognizes a teacher, youth worker, or community member who has created a living legacy by equipping young people to lead and serve. The recipient must also have served as a model of leadership, helping to nurture others in the field to expand their service-learning knowledge and skills.
*The State Farm Youth Excellence for Service-Learning Award recognizes youth leaders in K-12 service-learning programs that uniquely demonstrate leadership for service-learning excellence (defined as incorporating key elements of high quality service-learning, and having a sustainable impact on the participants and the broader community).
*The Alec Dickson Servant Leader Award was created to honor the vision and leadership of Alec Dickson, whose legacy in service and service-learning continues to influence young people, teachers, agencies, schools, and communities. This award commends leaders who have had the courage, compassion, and creativity to overcome barriers and positively impact the lives of young people.
