ALEA LOCAL COUNCIL RECOGNITION AWARD
The ALEA Local Council Recognition Award gives Local Council Committees the discretion to recognise a local ALEA member for their contribution at a regional level where that contribution does not fall within the criteria of other ALEA awards. The Award is presented at a Local Council or State event. Speak to your ALEA Local Council President if you would like to see someone recognised for their service locally.
Each year an ALEA prize of a year's membership to the Association is awarded to outstanding teacher education students in the final, core English Language and Literacy subject in their course.
The students eligible to enter come from pre-service teacher education courses and from collaborating universities. Local Councils may also choose to present an award to a post-graduate student. Generally, one award is offered for each university and for each campus with teacher education courses.
• Free membership of ALEA for one year
