The National Summer Learning Association (NSLA) is seeking applications from summer learning programs nationwide for the 2017 New York Life Foundation Excellence in Summer Learning Awards. The Excellence Award and Founder’s Award recognize outstanding summer programs and models that strive to curb learning loss in children and youth between prekindergarten and twelfth grade. The New York Life Foundation honors programs with a monetary award of $10,000. NSLA will announce award recipients on National Summer Learning Day, July 13, 2017. All summer program models are eligible for the awards, including drop-in sites or summer-focused plugin programs. Also eligible are wraparound programs that do not partner with a traditional site or enrollment-based summer program, but provide learning or enrichment opportunities during the summer. All applicants receive a detailed feedback report similar to having a full quality assessment. Finalists receive a phone call with two members of the NSLA Program Quality Team. A quality assessment for one program site is valued at up to $4,000.
