Each year, the Alaska Head Start Association’s annual awards recognize outstanding performance in Alaska’s Head Start programs. The awards also unify membership, celebrate success, encourage high quality performance and offer a meaningful way for AHSA to give back to our staff, parents and community members.

The awards are an opportunity for you to recognize an individual, business, organization, school district or Policy Council for their efforts that went above and beyond to serve Head Start children, families, staff and programs this school year. Thank you for taking time to nominate an individual, organization or business for their outstanding contributions to Head Start in Alaska this year.

The deadline to submit nominations is June 30, 2023.
