NAEHCY Annual Awards Overview

Over the years, the annual National Association for the Education of Homeless Children and Youth (NAEHCY) awards have become an important mechanism by which we can recognize our colleagues for the outstanding service they have provided to children and youth experiencing homelessness. Award recipients are selected through a screening and selection process overseen by a dedicated committee of state coordinators and other experts in the field. Award winners are recognized at a special ceremony held during the NAEHCY Annual Conference.
