Each year, VSBA honors individual school board members, as well as entire governing boards for efforts toward improvement, as an incentive for voluntary board member in-service training, to promote the idea of better boardsmanship, and for service to public schools in the form of advocacy. VSBA also offers programs to assist boards and divisions recognize their local partners.
