The Midwest Symposium for Leadership in Behavior Disorders requested nominations for it’s series of awards. Although the name of the organization may seem local (i.e., “Midwest”), the awards are not just local, they’re national and international. Over many years, the honorees have represented eminent contributors from both many countries as well as many classes of service providers.
Each year at the MSLBD conference there are muliple awards presented to indidivuals and organizations who provide outstanding service to individuals with EBD. The awards go to people or groups in the following categories::
Leadership: outstanding service and leadership to the field of E/BD at the national level

Educator: outstanding achievement and excellence in classroom service to students with E/BD
Building Leadership: outstanding supporter of students with E/BD

Nominations accepted from classrooms, schools, clinics, hospitals, or other organizations, offering direct services to children and youth with E/BD and ASD.
