The Leadership Awards were created at the request of the Advisory Boards for the Green California Schools and Community Colleges Summits to acknowledge outstanding accomplishments at California schools and community colleges.
We encourage nominations from schools and districts large and small. The awards are an ongoing part of the Summit program and the aim is to acknowledge as much good work as possible.
This year, the awards will recognize excellence in five categories. An award will be made in each category to both a K-12 and a community college project.
