NAEHCY 2016 Annual Awards Nominations Due September 16

Wednesday, August 24, 2016

NAEHCY's 2016 Annual Conference in Orlando, Florida, is upon us! In preparation, we are asking you to consider the individuals that dedicate themselves to homeless children and youth on a daily basis.

Over the years, the annual NAEHCY awards have become an important mechanism by which we can recognize our colleagues for the outstanding service they have provided to children and youth experiencing homelessness. Award recipients are selected through a screening and selection process overseen by a dedicated committee of state coordinators and other experts in the field. Award winners are recognized at a special ceremony held during the NAEHCY Annual Conference.

Award nominations may be submitted for exemplary programs and/or individuals that serve homeless children, youth, and/or families. Programs and/or individuals may be associated with schools, community agencies, volunteer organizations, shelters, or other entities or efforts that support the education of children and youth in homeless situations. Please review the criteria for each individual award on the next page to determine the most appropriate category for each nomination.
