Bonnie Campbell Hill National Literacy Teacher Leader Award 2015-2016
Through the Bonnie Campbell Hill National Literacy Teacher Award, the Children’s Literature Assembly (CLA) will honor two outstanding teacher leaders annually. The award recognizes the contributions and leadership of the late Bonnie Campbell Hill. Award recipients include classroom teachers, literacy coaches, or teacher educators dedicated to improving the teaching and learning of reading and writing in real world contexts in grades K – 8. The US $2,500 grant is intended to be used for professional development (not for materials, except professional books for a book study). Applicants must be members of both NCTE and CLA. The award is supported by Bonnie Campbell Hill’s family and colleagues.
Guidelines

Your application materials must include FOUR items:

  1. Completed application form.

  2. A professional development plan (three-page maximum) for 2015-2016 that outlines why you would be a strong candidate for these monies and your vision for how this support would allow you to improve and enhance teaching and learning for students and/or teachers. Funds may be used for, but are not limited to, the following examples: attending the Annual NCTE Conference, attending the Annual IRA Convention, attending Teacher’s College Training, or a reputable children’s literature conference, conducting literature-based research with teaching implementation potential (i.e., Kerlan Collection), buying professional books for a book study among colleagues. Funds may not be used to buy classroom materials. The plan should address key elements that are listed in the attached rubric. The plan must provide details about the project and include a specific budget indicating how the $2,500 would be spent.

  3. A resumé showing professional experience and leadership accomplishments/activities.

  4. A letter of recommendation from a supervisor detailing the applicant’s leadership skills, collaborative interactions, effective teaching practices, successful teaching/learning relationships with students and teachers and an understanding of the intentions and/or support of the project detailed by the applicant. The letter should address the evaluation criteria listed in the attached rubric.


An electronic copy of the complete application must be submitted to Dr. Nancy J. Johnson, committee chair, by June 30, 2015. The evaluation criteria are included with this letter.
Announcement of the winners will occur on or before August 15, 2015 for the 2015-2016 school year. The award will be presented at the November NCTE Convention. The recipients of the Bonnie Campbell Hill Literacy Teacher Leader Award are cordially invited to attend the CLA Breakfast where they will be introduced by the Awards Committee. All conference expenses (transportation, meals, and housing) will be borne by the winner or paid for out of the initial award.
