Each year GSCA selects a school counselor of the year. School counselors who wish to apply for GSCA Counselor of the Year and meet the eligibility requirements may apply for consideration. Each geographical area (Northern, Metro, Central, Southern) will select up to four semifinalists. The State Awards Committee will select one person to be named as Georgia School Counselor of the Year from the sixteen semi-finalists. GSCA will nominate the Counselor of the Year for ASCA Counselor of the Year consideration the following year. 

After this session, participants will be able to:

  1. Explain key steps for completing their application, 
  2. Discuss best practices for preparing their submissions, and 
  3. Identify common pitfalls to avoid.
