>Hello SRC Reps,
>I've just been alerted by Dennis Johnson that there is a
deadline coming up for the nomination of a student for APA's Student category
of its Distinguished Leadership Awards. Anyone can nominate a student, except
a student can't nominate themselves, nor can a family member. Only one
graduate and undergraduate from each planning school will be accepted, and the
student should either have just completed their final year, or be in their
final year now.
>For more information and an application form, visit
http://www.planning.org/awards/2003.htm or contact APA Public Affairs
Coordinator Denny Johnson at tel. 202/872-0611, ext. 1006. The deadline is
Friday, Sept. 6 at 5 p.m. EST. Denny told me that it is OK to send the
submission form by fax or electronically, and to send the rest of the
application- photos, maps, etc. in the mail to as to arrive by Friday of the
>This is a national award, and it will be a great honor for the
student that receives the award, especially if there are a large number of
nominations. Now, at the beginning of the year, it is a good time to check in
with the PSOs in your region and make sure that things are running smoothly.
Please promote and encourage nominations for this award when you make contact!
>Please Note: The APA Distinguished Leadership Award for a
Student Planner is different from the AICP Student Project and Outstanding
Student Awards. Deadlines for those two award categories are Dec. 13, 2002 and
March 2003, respectively.
