About the Distinguished School Administrator Award
An annual citation, administered by the American Association of School Librarians, presented to a person directly responsible for a school or group of schools who has made a unique and sustained contribution toward furthering the role of the libary and its development in elementary and/or secondary education.
Established in 1985, the $2,000 award honors a school administrator who has made worthy contributions to the operations of an exemplary school library and to advancing the role of the school library in the educational program. Nominations must be made by AASL personal members.
