Three Awards Each for Larger and Smaller Organizations

Three awards may be granted to larger organizations, and three to smaller organizations. The subcommittee will divide the entries into two groups, according to organization size.

In each group:
(1) the best entry overall will win the “Award of Professional Excellence”;
(2) the second best entry overall will win an “Award of Outstanding Achievement”; and
(3) a new award winner (an organization that has never won an ACLEA’s Best Program award, or hasn’t won in the past 10 years) will win an “Award of Outstanding Achievement”.

See the “How to Enter Checklist and Rules” for further details.
