Nominations now being accepted for 2021
For more than 30 years, CSBA has honored current members of the California Senate and Assembly, as well as members of Congress, who actively work to improve our public schools, support local school board governance and exercise leadership in the legislative arena. CSBA encourages all school and county boards to participate in this program by nominating a member of the California State Legislature, the California Congressional delegation or federal/state elective or appointed office for CSBA's 2021 Legislative Awards Program. We do require that nominees be from within your district boundaries.
The deadline for nominations for 2021 Legislative Awards is September 3, 2021.
A board resolution (limited to one page) or minutes showing the board action must accompany each nomination form.
The final selection of honorees will be made in September and announced later in 2021 or early in 2022.
Legislators may be nominated in one of five categories:
- Outstanding Legislator (State or Federal)
- Outstanding Freshman Legislator
- Special Recognition
- Albert S. Rodda Lifetime Achievement Award
- Dede Alpert Award for Exemplary Education Leadership
