Champions for Children 2022

In 2022, ASA has awarded 3 student scholarships on behalf of our generous Champions for Children sponsors!

The Champions for Children program allows organizations to support the Alaska Superintendents Association and students while promoting their organization in Alaska. The cost is $1,000 per year.

Each year at the ASA Legislative Fly-In, two $1,000 scholarships are given away on behalf of the collective Champions for Children. An eligible school district superintendent is chosen at random to receive the scholarship, which will then be awarded to a student within the district. This year Dr. Larry LeDoux, Kodiak School District, and Dan Polta, Denali School District, awarded scholarships to students in their district.

Dr. Bridget Weiss, 2022 Alaska Superintendent of the Year, will also awarded a student within the Juneau School District.

Additional Champion for Children Scholarships are awarded on behalf of sponsors who indicate support for an additional scholarship. ***Thank you to First Student for supporting an additional scholarship again in 2022!***

Champions for Children receive the following benefits:

  • One complimentary registration for the ACSA Legislative Fly-In where the Champion for Children Scholarship is awarded at a special event.
  • Special recognition at all ASA meetings.
  • Your company logo included in all meeting publications and all Education Bulletins ─ a publication sent to education stakeholders, including school administrators, across Alaska.
  • A complimentary subscription to ACSA and ASA publications.
