NASP Lifetime Achievement Award (LAA)
Hints For Nominators & Candidates
Letters of Support (4)
- Letters of support should speak to a candidate’s presentation as a role model for school psychologists and as an exemplary representative of the school psychology profession.
- Letters of support should avoid restating information already provided in a candidate’s vita.
- Ask a variety of people (students, teachers, colleagues, administrators, community support personnel, parents, etc.) to write letters of support. The committee prefers to see a variety of letter writers rather than all school personnel.
- It is not necessary to have letters of recommendation or support on letterhead.
- If letters of support are more than two pages, the awards chair will determine which two pages will be sent to the committee.
- Make sure the nominee is a NASP member or is willing to become a member for the 2013-2014 fiscal year.
- Make sure the candidate meets the following criteria:
- Has at least 25 years in the profession
- Has been a NASP member for at least 20 years
- Is a current NASP member for 2013-2014
- Has 10 or more years as a NASP leader
- Please use a one-inch left margin on all materials, so there is room to hole punch them for committee member notebooks.
- Incomplete files will not be reviewed. A file will be considered incomplete if one of the documents is missing, if the person is not a NASP member or does not meet the “who is eligible” guidelines.
- Materials must be postmarked by July 15th, 2013 and mailed to:
3161 Avenue I
Bison, KS 67520
