Advisor of the Year

Advisor Recognition Programs

Missouri participates in two advisor recognition programs and submits state nominees to the National Advisor Award Programs sponsored by the National Association of Student Councils (NASC). Each District will nominate one senior high and one junior high outstanding advisor. Each individual will be recognized at State Convention. The Executive Board reviews all nominees and makes the final selection for the MASC Advisor of the Year for both middle level/junior high and high school. Award winners are recognized at State Convention.

To nominate an advisor, please contact your District Representative.
