Process to Create or Modify an Award

A A A

Creating a New Award
Potential new awards will be considered annually by the ACTE Board of Directors.  In order for a new award request to be reviewed, it must complete the following steps:

  1. Submit a completed Request to Create an Award form.
  2. Send completed request form to the ACTE Awards Committee staff liaison by May 1.

The ACTE Awards Committee will review new award request and submit a recommendation to the ACTE Board of Directors prior to the July Board of Directors meeting. If approved, the award will go into effect during the next awards cycle. 

Modifying an Existing Award
In the event that modifications to a current award need to be made, requests for modification should be sent directly to the ACTE Awards Committee Staff Liaison. The ACTE Awards Committee Staff Liaison will review all modification requests to ensure the integrity and consistency of the ACTE Excellence Awards brand.

In order for a modification request to be reviewed, it must complete the following steps:

  1. Submit a completed Request to Modify an Award form.
  2. Send completed request form to the ACTE Awards Committee staff liaison.

When consistent or significant modifications are requested, they will be reviewed by the ACTE Awards Committee.  The ACTE Awards Committee recommendations will be sent to the ACTE Board of Directors for final review and approval.  

Reviewing Unused Awards
If an award is not given for three consecutive years, it will be reviewed by the ACTE Awards Committee.  The ACTE Awards Committee will reconsider the Award and make recommendations for improving the award to reach the desired audience or removing the award.  The ACTE Awards Committee recommendations will be sent to the ACTE Board of Directors for final review and approval.
