School Counselor of the Year (SCOY)

Nominations 2024-25

(Nominations are currently closed.  Please check back to nominate for the 2024-25 school year!)

Dear Educators, Students, and Families,

Do you know an exceptional school counselor?  Of course you do! There are lots of them, but has one made a significant impact on you, your child or maybe the school where you work?  Now is the time to recognize and reflect on how school counselors impact and promote the academic and social emotional growth of students as they prepare to become citizens of the 21
st century. 

Would you like to honor a school counselor who has gone above and beyond the regular duties of their job, as they plan and implement programs and activities that make a difference for the students, families and communities in Delaware?  In appreciation of our school counselors’ invaluable contributions, the DSCA Board is now accepting nominations for our Delaware School Counselor of the Year Award. 

Nominating a school counselor is easy and a school counselor only needs ONE nomination in order to be part of the process. Please use and share the link below.

SCOY Nomination Form

The Deadline for Nominations is November 8, 2024.

All nominees will be notified of their nomination(s) after the deadline date and will be provided with information about the next step in the process.

It is important to note that this award is different from the State of Delaware Behavioral Health Professional of the Year Award. School counselors are eligible for both awards, but each is overseen by different entities and has different requirements. The attached chart outlines some of those similarities and differences.

Feel free to share this with anyone who might be interested in nominating a school counselor. If you have any questions, contact Jodi DaCosta, (302) 722-7118

​Sincerely, 
Jodi DaCosta
DSCA Professional Recognition Chair
