VSCA Awards and Honors

Each year VSCA recognizes outstanding advisers, principals, and student councils at the State Convention with a variety of awards.

The Achievement Award is the highest honor for student councils. To be recognized, schools must apply and submit documentation of completing a variety of activities. The required and additional projects must be assembled in a portfolio and reviewed by the school principal. All member schools that complete the criteria will receive the Award.

The Advisor of the Year and Administrator of the Year awards recognize those who go above and beyond the usual in their support of student council programs.
