Each year, the Iowa School Counselor Association gives awards to certain individuals who have been instrumental in the field of school counseling during the previous year(s). These individuals are nominated by their peers and chosen by an independent panel who follow the various criteria for each category.
Awards include School Counselor of the Year, Memorial and Grant Awards, RAMP and NBCT recognition, and ASCA awards. Award winners are recognized each year at the annual conference.
The nomination period is now closed. The 2016 Iowa School Counselors of the Year will be announced at the annual ISCA conference on November 7.
