Student Leadership Awards

MASC Distinguished Student Leader

MASC Distinguished Student Leader is the newest program sponsored by the Missouri Association of Student Councils. It has been created to motivate and challenge student leaders to extend their leadership skills and activities and to confer Missouri recognition upon those students who demonstrate superior student council leadership skills and knowledge, based on MASC criteria and evaluation procedures.

To become an MASC Distinguished Student Leader, students must be members of their student councils in MASC member schools and graduating at the time they submit their applications. The standards for the Distinguished Student Leader program reflect the core purposes and mission of student councils. Additionally, the evaluation procedure has been designed so that the bulk of the process takes place at the school level with the results being forwarded to MASC for the final assessment. This facilitates a process that will help students become more proficient in self-assessment practices and better able to organize and build a record of evidence focused on their student council and related leadership activities.
