Nominate a Deserving Student for the Adult Education Students Succeed Program

Posted on 03/22/2019

You still have just over three weeks to nominate an adult education learner who is successful as a result of the education received at a California WIOA-funded adult education agency for the 2019 Adult Education Students Succeed Program. This is a great way to recognize the hard work that an outstanding student has completed in the pursuit of their personal, academic, and professional goals and aspirations.

Adult Education Students Succeed website tabs

To get started, visit the Adult Education Students Succeed website at https://adultedlearners.org/ External link opens in new window or tab On the home page, you can read stories and watch videos from previous years by clicking on the Students tab on the far left. You can also explore stories from specific adult education agencies and programs by clicking on the Schools and Programs tabs (to the right of the Students tab).

To learn how to nominate a student for the program, select the About tab at the top of the page on the site. Pay special attention to the five-point rubric at the bottom of the page that will be used to score each nomination that the review panel will read. A nomination must secure a minimum score for the student’s story and photo to be included on the website. Students who get the top two scores from all nominations will each have a video story produced and will be invited to the 2019 ACSA Leadership Summit in November for a special recognition honoring successful students across California.

To nominate a student, click on the Nomination tab to complete an online nomination form. Once the nomination is successfully submitted, you will receive confirmation from OTAN. The last day to nominate a student for consideration is Monday, April 15.
