The MASA Superintendent of the Year Award is given out each year by the Michigan Association of Superintendents & Administrators to a superintendent who has shown tremendous effort and dedication to enriching the lives of children and the community. This prestigious award recognizes strong leadership and creativity in successfully meeting the needs of students, as well as highly accomplished communication skills, professionalism and community involvement.

The process to nominate your superintendent for the 2019 Superintendent of the Year Award is simple:

Step 1: Submit a nomination through AASA’s Superintendent of the Year web portal: Both the nominator and nominee will receive an email confirmation from AASA that a nomination was submitted. The deadline for nominations is 5 p.m. on Aug. 10, 2018.

Step 2: The nominee must complete an application, also through the AASA’s Superintendent of the Year web portal. Nominees who do not submit an application will not be considered for the award. The deadline for applications is 5 p.m. on Aug. 31, 2018.

The MASA SOY Selection Committee will meet in October to select the 2019 Superintendent of the Year. The winner will be presented with the award by MASA Executive Director Chris Wigent at a local school board meeting no later than Nov 7, 2018. The 2019 Michigan Superintendent of the Year will automatically be entered into the running for the AASA National Superintendent of the Year Award.
