GAYC Banquet 2013 - Laurel Beckham and Phillip BaumgarnerGAYC Quality Service Awards

Each year GAYC recognizes individuals and early childhood programs that have made a significant difference in the lives of children ages birth through third grade in the state of Georgia through our annual Quality Service Awards. The awards are divided into 14 categories to acknowledge all spheres of influence in early care and education. Potential recipients are nominated by others, and winners are selected by the GAYC Scholarships & Awards Committee. Winners in all categories are recognized at the Together for Children Annual Conference in September.

Nominations Process

Nominations for Quality Service Awards are accepted in the spring of each year, and award winners are decided in early summer. The nominations form for 2017 will be available in the spring of 2017.  Please note that GAYC staff and current GAYC board members are not eligible for GAYC awards. Previous award winners are not eligible to receive awards for the same category for 3 years.
