About the Lands' End Love Learning Award, presented by NSLA
Learning happens anywhere and anytime and summer is the perfect time for families to unleash the curiosity and passions of young people. That’s why the National Summer Learning Association (NSLA) and Lands’ End have teamed up to present the first-ever Love Learning Award to shine a spotlight on quality programs that bring learning to life in informal learning spaces and support families in meaningful ways. Particular focus will be given to summer programs that focus on environmental stewardship, STEM/STEAM (science, technology, engineering, math, arts) as candidates for the First Annual Lands’ End Love Learning Award. The winning program will receive a $10,000 award and national recognition. The award recipient of the prestigious Lands’ End Love Learning Award will be a well-rounded educational program with a dynamic vision for shaping smarter summers, brighter futures for our country’s youth, particularly our most vulnerable students.

The application is collected via Survey Monkey and must be completed in one sitting. Applications submission period is July 1 through November 30, 2018. To complete the application, follow this link: https://www.surveymonkey.com/r/LoveLrngAwrd. To preview the application questions, follow this link: https://bit.ly/2KubPKV. Programs are measured against the Summer Learning Program Quality Assessment (SLPQA), developed in partnership between NSLA and the David P. Weikart Center for Youth Program Quality.

 Applications are reviewed by NSLA staff in addition to representatives from peer organizations in the field followed by interviews for a select group of semi-finalists. Site visits are conducted to a group of finalists to observe program activities before announcing the awards during National Summer Learning Day celebrations July, 2019.

In September, NSLA will host an interactive webinar featuring tips for your application and best practices.  Please sign up for the Summer Times to stay up to date: http://www.summerlearning.org/newsletter-sign-up/.
