Let’s honor those that give their time and effort to enhance K-12 education at the local and state levels.

We need you to submit candidates for ASBSD’s Outstanding School Board Member of the Year, School Bell and Community Service awards.


“It’s a busy time of year for schools, but we need administrators and board members to nominate the admirable individuals in their community for these awards,” Executive Director Wade Pogany said.


Outstanding School Board Member: Nominate a local board member who exemplifies extraordinary leadership of public education by implementing initiatives that spur student achievement, advocating for secure funding sources for K-12 education and setting high expectations for the district and themselves among other high-quality characteristics.


School Bell: Nominate an individual working to improve public education in South Dakota through their exceptional leadership qualities, efforts to enhance facilities, teaching and learning and work with the state’s lawmakers along with additional excellent merits.


Community Service: Nominate a person or group that went above and beyond with their efforts to improve their local district through support of arts, music and extra-curricular activities, extraordinary fundraising efforts and steadfast commitment to the district.


“This is yours, mine and our way of recognizing and thanking those outstanding individuals for their extra efforts to improve K-12 education,” Pogany said. “We need your nominations.”


Deadline for application submission is Friday, May 24. Submission information is listed on each application.
