Each year at the MOSAC2 Professional Development Institute, we recognize professionals in the out-of-school time field who demonstrate excellence in their work, and who exhibit commitment an enthusiasm in serving Missouri youth each day.
This year, we are also holding the Celebration of Afterschool Recognition Luncheon during the MOSAC2 PDI. Please consider nominating staff for the two competitive awards (Outstanding Professional Award and Rising Star Aware) and for recognition of their length of service and educational achievements (non-competitive). In addition to staff, you may also submit nominations for community partners and school administrators to be recognized during the Celebration of Afterschool Luncheon.
