NEA will present its 22nd annual NEA ESP Award at the 2013 NEA ESP National Conference on Friday, March 8th. The conference will be held at the Louisville Marriott Downtown, 280 West Jefferson Street, Louisville, KY 40202, www.marriottlouisville.com.
Award nominee applications must be received by NEA no later than the close of business on December 5, 2012.
A state affiliate can choose one of the following two nomination procedures:
State Nomination: A state affiliate may submit one nominee through its ESP Award system. A state award system is one developed by the state Association that gathers nominations through local affiliates and selects one statewide nominee. A submission by a state affiliate requires the signature of the state president.
Local Nomination: If a state affiliate does not yet have an ESP award system in place for the 2012-2013 school year, the affiliate may inform local affiliates that they may submit one nomination directly to NEA. A submission by a local requires the signature of the local president.
We urge you to assist us in spreading the word about this award to all interested members. Additional copies of the nomination form may be obtained on www.nea.org/esp or by contacting Lisa Connor at (202) 822-7529 or Lconnor@nea.org.
