AATSP-GA has created an award to encourage the development of and provide recognition for exemplary high school programs of teaching and learning Spanish in our state. Applications will be accepted throughout the year and will be considered either for the current year or the following year. Applications will be kept on file for two years. Members of the AATSP GA award committee will review and rate each application. The school receiving the award will be recognized during the annual AATSP-GA meeting during the spring FLAG Conference and/or at the fall AATSP-GA Conference with a plaque, letters to the principal and other school officials, and local publicity.
