The Award of Excellence was instituted to acknowledge an individual(s) or court that had demonstrated or implemented a positive impact on their particular court or courts statewide. This includes but not limited to new programs, ie; veteran's court, veteran stand down, homeless court and also IT projects. In the way back time, the winner was awarded a plaque, $250, recognized at the Annual Business Meeting and also in the newsletter.
Currently ACA awards the winner with a plaque and referenced in the newsletter at the Spring Conference. The deadline is usually 45 - 60 prior to the conference date to allow the board to vote if multiple requests are sent and to let the attendee know. If the winner is not an attendee at the conference, they are invited to lunch to accept the award.
If you have any questions, please feel free to contact us.
Thank you for your interest in the Award of Excellence Program,
The deadline for applications was Wednesday, February 1, 2017.
