Sam Kirk Educator of the Year Award

Each year the LDA of America selects an outstanding educator to receive the Sam Kirk Educator of the Year Award. This is an opportunity to give educators a well-deserved “thank you” and lets them know that they are greatly valued for their contributions to individuals with learning disabilities. The award is designed so that exceptional educators can be honored at the local, state and national levels. We hope that every local and state affiliate will participate!

The Procedures for Nominations were sent out from the National Office to state and local affiliates. Local LDA affiliates or members-at-large may submit a nomination to their state affiliate. All nominations must reach the National Office by November 1, 2016.

  • The recipient of the Sam Kirk Educator of the Year Award must be “an educator who has made outstanding contributions to the education of persons with learning disabilities.”
  • Members of the LDA Board of Directors or PAB and/or persons employed by LDA at the local, state or national levels are not eligible for nomination.

The Sam Kirk Educator of the Year Award includes: an award certificate, round-trip super-saver coach airfare to the 2017 LDA International Conference; complimentary registration to the conference with up to four days per diem up to $100; recognition at a general session; and two complimentary tickets to the Awards Brunch.
