Middle School Component Awards
OMLA Middle School Component Awards
The applications for 2020 Component Awards can be found below. The Component Awards are given out at our annual conference each year. THE DEADLINE TO SUBMIT AN APPLICATION FOR THIS YEAR HAS PASSED. NEW APPLICATIONS FOR 2021 WILL BE AVAILABLE SOON. You can submit an online application at this time.
The purpose of the Ohio Middle Level Association Component Award Recognition Program is to identify and recognize schools that have implemented middle school concept components in an exemplary manner. It is the intention of OMLA that the recognized programs will serve as models for aspiring educators and provide model resources for schools striving to develop, refine or polish components of their middle schools. Recognized schools are open for visitations and encouraged to give presentations at the annual OMLA State Conference.
