OUTSTANDING CONTRIBUTION TO THE FIELD AWARD: Deadline March 31, 2023
This award recognizes an outstanding example of the connection between labor education and activism: a new curriculum, important project, outstanding campaign on an issue, or an exemplary effort to use labor education to strengthen the labor movement. It can involve a formal institution of labor education, either university-, union-, or community-based. Or it can represent an independent effort outside an institutional labor ed program. It can be an on-going program, multi- year effort, or one that has ended. Some aspect of the program must have occurred within the previous calendar year. An individual, a program, or a project must be nominated to be considered. After the close of nominations, the UALE Board sends out a list of nominees and the membership determines the winner. Nominations should be submitted to email@example.com along with a 150-word description of the nominee and their work.
