Exemplary Program Awards
NCWE will recognize two colleges with our Exemplary Program Awards in two categories: Credit Workforce Development Program and Noncredit Workforce Development Program. These awards will be presented at the NCWE Annual Conference on Wednesday October 14, 2015 at the NCWE Annual Conference in Portland, OR.
Award recipients will be chosen based on five application criteria: executive summary, description of partnerships and collaborations, potential economic impact, program results, and replication. Applicants must be members of NCWE.
Award recipients will receive two complementary registrations for the NCWE conference. Award recipients will also be strongly encouraged to present their project at the NCWE Annual Conference and/or during a NCWE sponsored webinar. All awards will be included in the NCWE Exemplary Program Compendium which is published yearly at the annual conference.

John F. Grede Board Service Award
The John F. Grede Board Service Award is presented to past members of the NCWE Board of Directors who have given outstanding, extraordinary service to the National Council for Workforce Education. This award is named after NCWE's first president, Dr. John F. Grede, who served during 1975-76. Dr. Grede conceived the idea to establish the Council for Occupational Education during the mid-1970's when the AACJC Board of Directors adopted the concept of affiliated councils. His dedication and leadership to the Council serves as the inspiration and standard of service for all who receive this award.
