Positive Image Award

Positive Image Awards are presented to locals that enhance the image of their members, schools, school districts, or public education in general in the community.

Activities that are developed by members, work-related or not, that include the community are eligible for consideration. Submissions are limited to one entry per category (association or individual).

Do You Have What It Takes?

  • An external activity or project that included the community and created a positive image of your association.
  • Proof of your activity in public media through a newspaper article, TV video, radio tape, photograph, or audiotape highlighting the project or media coverage.

If you can check both of these boxes, you can enter to win a Positive Image Award from NEOEA for your Association.

Winners of the Positive Image Award will be selected by the NEOEA Public Relations Committee from nomination letters submitted by Friday, February 7, 2020. In your nomination letter, please label the entry as either an individual or an association award. Nominations* must be accompanied by proof of appearance in one of the media noted above.

Send your entry to: NEOEA, Positive Image; 6001 Landerhaven Drive, Suite D; Mayfield Heights, OH 44124-4190.

* Items submitted will not be returned.
