Fall 2020 OSPA Awards

Hello OSPA Members!

Bridget Piotter and Melissa Bestgen, co chairs of the OSPA Awards Committee, are honored to present to you the Fall 2020 Awards recipients.

Early Career Award

The purpose of this award is to acknowledge the accomplishments of school psychologists in the first five years of their career. Nominees should demonstrate a commitment to the practice and promotion of school psychology, research, and advocacy. Membership in local, state, and national organizations, presentation of research at professional conferences, and participation in volunteer and advocacy events are considered.

School Psychologist of The Year

In 1991, the OSPA Executive Board established the School Psychologist of the Year Award. The purpose of this award is to recognize one school psychologist each year who provides outstanding service delivery within the practitioner realm. It is required that at least seventy-five percent of a candidate's time be spent providing school psychological services to students, teachers, and parents, typically in a school setting. Nominees must be OSPA members and are nominated by a regional association. The recipient of the Ohio School Psychologist of the Year Award then becomes Ohio's nominee for the National School Psychologist of the Year Award, presented by NASP at its Annual Convention.

The Ohio School Psychologists Association Executive Board is honored to present the Fall 2020 School Psychologist of the Year, Amy Such. Please click here to view the video.
