Call for nominations: Lightner Witmer award

Please submit your entries for young professionals and academic school psychologists who have demonstrated scholarship deserving special recognition

Each year the Division of School Psychology presents the Lightner Witmer Award to young professional and academic school psychologists who have demonstrated scholarship which merits special recognition. Continuing scholarship, rather than a thesis or dissertation alone, is the primary consideration in making the award and a person does not need a doctoral degree to be eligible.

Nominees must be:

(a) within seven years of receiving their education specialist or doctoral degree as of September 1 of the year the award is given (degree conferral December 2005 or later); and

(b) be a Fellow, Member, Associate, or Student Affiliate of Division 16.

Materials should be forwarded on each nominee including a vita, supporting letter(s), reprints, and other evidence of scholarship. All nominations and related materials must be submitted electronically by April 1, 2012 to the Chair of the Committee, Shannon Suldo, PhD.

Deadline:  April 1, 2012
