The deadline for 2015 MCMLA Award nominations is August 31 and the Honors and Awards Committee is still seeking nominations! 

Nominate a fellow member or yourself for one of the three annual Midcontinental Chapter awards. These awards are a great way to recognize the outstanding service of a coworker or professional colleague. 

Awards will be announced at the 2015 MCMLA Virtual Meeting, but if you are unable to attend the Virtual Meeting you are still eligible to be nominated for an award.
