Nominations for the 2023 Superintendents to Watch award are being accepted through Friday, Oct. 20, 2023.

Each year the National School Public Relations Association recognizes up to 25 superintendents as Superintendents to Watch. Honorees are school district leaders who have fewer than five years of experience as a superintendent and who demonstrate dynamic, fast-paced leadership with strong communication at its core. They use communication technology in innovative and effective ways to engage and inform their school communities and to expand two-way communication and outreach efforts.  

To be considered for the award, nominees must have:

  • Fewer than five years of cumulative experience as a superintendent of schools in a school district/school board system(s) at the time of nomination;
  • Implemented a communication program for the district that includes the use of new communication technology as well as more standard communication tools;
  • Integrated communication goals and strategies into the district’s strategic plan; and
  • Active, visible involvement in the district's communication effort (e.g., social media posts, blogs, participates in face-to-face engagement activities, responsive to media requests, models good communication for staff).

Nominees do not have to be an NSPRA member. The deadline to submit a nomination is Friday, Oct. 20, 2023.
