WCSS Student Award Nomination Form
The WCSS is pleased to offer many awards recognizing teachers, leaders and organizations that help support the goals of WCSS. One of these goals is to improve social studies teaching, develop the professional interests of social studies instructors, and cooperate with other organizations working for a better social understanding in the state, nation, and world. While the WCSS shares your passion for teaching and your interest in working with outside groups to improve Social Studies instruction, we also hope to focus on another important stakeholder: our students.
This new award, the WCSS Student Recognition Award, was founded based on a simple concept; our students are capable, and are doing amazing things promoting social studies in our communities, state and around the world. The award was originally suggested and agreed on based on a student in western WI who held several fundraisers, raised awareness, and ultimately sent enough money to provide a new well for school aged students in Uganda. Students who recognize a need and a desire to help people are deserving of our respect and our recognition.
We would like to ask you to consider nominating deserving students for this award. The criteria of the award are based on the same criteria of the Global Citizenship Award:
*Exhibits responsibility and community activism,
*Demonstrates uncommon courage or valor,
*Promotes justice and peace,
*Aids the oppressed,
*Protects the environment,
*Builds a grassroots initiative and/or effectively navigates the political system to promote positive change.
If you have a student who deserves to be recognized by the WCSS for his or her hard work, please submit the form below. A great community is built by caring students, teachers and the community working together. Please help us recognize those carrying out this great work.
Nominations are due by March 1, 2022. Student winners will be recognized at the WCSS conference.
