Excellence in Workforce Readiness Award
ResourcesRecognitionExcellence in Workforce Readiness Award

The Excellence in Workforce Readiness Award seeks to recognize Virginia School Divisions who have achieved excellence in Workforce Readiness through an innovative program/project within your school community or in a regional collaboration with emphasis on:

• communication and collaboration with the business community;
• student engagement with the business community; or
• student entrepreneurial activities.

One submission per school division/region.

VSBA has included a Regional Category for program submissions to reflect the growing number of collaborations between school divisions in workforce readiness. The Regional Category is for any two or more school divisions currently working with Program Partners outside the school division in advancing excellence in Workforce Readiness through innovative programs/projects across school division boundaries. Individual school divisions submitting a Regional Category may submit an individual application of a program within the school division. The individual application must be independent and not part of the Regional Category.

The entry must be approved by the school board/boards at a school board meeting.

The deadline has passed.

Please send applications and direct questions to, J.T. Kessler, Director of Legislative Services, at 800-446-8722, 434-295-8722 or e-mail jason@vsba.org.
