Call for Inglis Award Nominations 2017

Rewey Belle Inglis Award

Call for Nominations

Due: February 20, 2017

Each year, the National Council of Teachers of English (NCTE) recognizes an outstanding woman in English Education with an award named for Rewey Belle Inglis, the first woman president of NCTE. All women considered for this honor will have exhibited outstanding professional service relating to the role and image of women in the profession and in NCTE. The Inglis Award recipient will have shown excellence in scholarship/research, teaching, and service related to English language arts. The Inglis Award committee, made up of members of the Gender and Literacy Assembly (GALA, formerly WILLA), is charged with selecting the recipient of the Rewey Belle Inglis Award.

 

This year, we will be soliciting nominations early so that the winner of the 2017 award can speak during GALA’s SIG session at this year’s NCTE conference in St. Louis.

 

Please email a letter of nomination detailing how the nominee’s qualifications match the award criteria and a copy of the nominee’s curriculum vitae to Dr. Heather McEntarfer, Inglis Award Chair, at heather.mcentarfer@fredonia.edu.

For full consideration, nominations should arrive by February 20th. The recipient will be notified of her selection and will be honored at the CEE Luncheon at the annual NCTE Convention.

The Rewey Belle Inglis Award is given each year to a woman who has exhibited outstanding professional service relating to the role and image of women in the profession and in NCTE. The Inglis Award recipient will have shown excellence in scholarship/research, teaching, and service related to English Language Arts.
