Distinguished Contribution Award Our section bestows a distinguished contribution award each year, whose focus varies on a three-year cycle (early career, publication, and advocacy). In 2011, the Distinguished Contribution Award is an advocacy award, to be given to an organization that has made significant contributions on behalf of children and youth. The organization should be in the Las Vegas area, where the ASA annual meeting will be held this year. Please send nominations with a brief rationale to the Award Committee Chair, Val Leiter (valerie.leiter (at) simmons.edu), by February 15th.
