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 coordinator 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 2019–2020 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 2019–2020
Has 10 or more years as a NASP leader
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.
