MASC recognizes school councils for their well-rounded structure, participation, and achievements.

The Felix Simon Student Council Awards highlight the MASC member councils that are truly remarkable.   MASC is presenting your council with not only a challenge but also with an opportunity to grow and to improve through self-evaluation.   To more effectively honor student councils, there are separate middle and high school applications for the Awards.  Student councils will be recognized as a Felix Simon Student Council based on predetermined point values. 

Student councils can also use this award as a stepping-stone towards achieving National Student Council recognition.

******* National Student Council (NSC) Awards *******

National Council of Excellence 

 –Submission Deadline is Friday, February 15, 2019. 

Middle level and high school student councils that consistently provide quality leadership activities and service to their schools and communities can earn national recognition through NSC National Council of Excellence program.

There are two levels of recognition. A student council achieves a National Council of Excellence Award when it has demonstrated that it meets all the NASC requirements. The National Gold Council of Excellence award is awarded to those councils that demonstrate the highest levels of leadership, plus meet additional standards as set by NASC.

These awards distinguish outstanding student councils by guiding student leaders and their faculty advisers through a process featuring standards-based criteria and demonstration-based outcomes, reflecting more than 80 years of expertise in student council and leadership programming.

Warren Shull Advisor of the Year Award

Each year, the Warren E. Shull Award is presented to a middle level and high school student council advisor who demonstrates exemplary character, leadership, and commitment to young people and their development as student leaders. Each state association may name one middle level and one high school student council adviser for the state level of the Shull Award.  MASC nominates our Advisor of the Year receipients  – schools must be a member of NSC.

Kyker State Association Service Project Award  (closed)
