Know an outstanding ECE professional or program? Each year GAYC recognizes individuals and early childhood programs that have made a significant difference in the lives of children ages birth through third grade in the state of Georgia through our annual Quality Service Awards. The awards are divided into 14 categories to acknowledge all spheres of influence in early care and education. Potential recipients are nominated by others, and winners are selected by the GAYC Scholarships & Awards Committee. Winners in all categories are recognized at the Together for Children Annual Conference in September.
Nominations for 2016 awards are currently being accepted. Click on the links here to access the Awards Criteria and Nominations form. The deadline for submission is July 29, 2016. This is a great chance to recognize someone who is making important contributions to the ECE field! Please note that current GAYC board members are not eligible for GAYC awards. Previous award winners are not eligible to receive an award in the same category for 3 years.
