FOR THE IJEA ADVISER SERVICE AWARD


Annual Deadline: March 1


Each year, the IJEA seeks to honor active or retired scholastic media educators and advisers for special initiative on behalf of scholastic journalism in Illinois. Criteria for award recipients include the following:

• The nominee’s membership in IJEA
• The nominee’s initiative and service above and beyond normal classroom or advising duties
• The nominee’s specific benefit to fellow media advisers or scholastic media students in Illinois, but the nominee may also have impact beyond the state

The award is presented at the annual awards luncheon in June; however, it may not be presented every year.

Past recipients of this award and other advisers who are members of IJEA are encouraged to recommend candidates to a representative on the IJEA board. Nominations must be made by an IJEA board member.
