2019 ECWCA Tutor Award Nominations
Each year the East Central Writing Centers Association (ECWCA) acknowledges the outstanding service provided by tutors/consultants throughout the region. Designed to celebrate the contributions of undergraduate-student, graduate-student, and staff writing center tutors, these awards serve not only to publicly acknowledge deserving tutors/consultants, but also to support and sustain the important work of writing centers for campuses and larger communities for another generation. Two awards, one in each category explained below, are presented each year.
1. Outstanding Tutor of the Year Award
This award recognizes innovative approaches to tutoring/consulting, the quality of work with writers, and the articulation of a tutoring/consulting philosophy. While any member of the writing center staff who tutors may be nominated for the Outstanding Tutor of the Year award, it is generally given to those who hold tutoring positions.
2. Tutor Leadership Award
This award recognizes the leadership contributions of undergraduate-student, graduate-student, and staff writing center tutors, including but not limited to development of new programs, writing center training innovations, presentation of writing center work in academic and non-academic forums, community outreach, work with special populations, and creativity in writing center programming/services. While any tutor may be nominated for the Tutor Leadership Award, it is generally given to tutors who hold positions of leadership in their writing centers: for instance, assistants to the director, assistant directors, graduate coordinators, and lead tutors are the most likely candidates for this award.
