     We all know one -- a legislative education staffer who exhibits a high degree of professionalism, competence and integrity in service to the legislature and the public; is an expert in education policy; and contributes to the work of the Legislative Education Staff Network (LESN).  Such a person deserves our admiration and recognition for their efforts.  With that goal in mind, it is our pleasure to announce that LESN is accepting nominations of legislative education staff for the 2011 LESN Recognition Award!  This is your chance to recognize a talented employee or colleague who has provided outstanding service to the legislative process through the years and who has been active in our network.  This year’s award recipient will be recognized at the Education Commission of the States (ECS) National Forum in Denver, Colorado, on July 6-8 and at the National Conference of State Legislatures (NCSL) Legislative Summit in San Antonio, Texas on August 8-11.  

     All legislative staff that work on education policy and have participated in the LESN are eligible to receive this award.  The selection criteria are listed in the award guidelines.  Please submit the nomination form by Friday, May 27, detailing your nominee’s contributions and how the nominee meets the selection criteria.  The recipient of the award will be notified by Monday, June 13.  

    We strongly encourage you to showcase your state’s education staff and recognize their contributions to LESN and the legislative process by nominating your colleagues.  We look forward to receiving your nominations.  Please contact Melodye Bush, ECS LESN Staff Coordinator, at (303) 299-3631 or mbush@ecs.org if you have any questions.
