Outstanding Legislator Award

Do you know a state or federal lawmaker who has gone above and beyond in support of public school students and county offices of education? CCBE encourages county boards to nominate a member of the California State Legislature, the California Congressional delegation or another federal or state elected or appointed official for CCBE’s 2021 Outstanding Legislator Awards program. The award is bestowed upon a state or federal lawmaker who has been actively involved in legislation or legislative activities supporting the work of county offices of education and their programs. Your nomination should include why your nominee is being recognized and share the story explaining how the work they are doing supports COEs and their student populations. The nomination should also photos or supporting articles and/or documentation and information about the problem and solution of the legislation they are supporting.

Nominations for the 2021 Outstanding Legislator Awards program are due to CCBE no later than 5 p.m., Wednesday, Sept. 1, 2021 to be considered. It is important that nominations include as much specific information as possible and highlight legislation with a direct, beneficial effect on COEs and their students.
