Adviser Corner: MASC/MAHS Award Season!

Written by Ashliegh Larkin

Tis the season...for MASC/MAHS Awards! I can still remember working on the MASC/MAHS Award of Excellence as a high school student at Royal Oak Dondero with my amazing co-advisers adviser, Mr. Larry Streeter & Ms. Kim Bos. It seemed like a daunting task. We were looking at 60 pages worth of materials in front of us, trying to figure out how to piece it together in order to display to the board that we were truly a school of excellence in Michigan and one that was worthy of this prestigious award.Fast forward 12 years and I am back at it with my kids!

Regional Connect Events

Regional Connect event dates and locations are posted and available for registration! Featuring 8 different locations across the state including one just for middle school programming this years Regionals are sure to be an idea-sharing and gathering frenzy. These events feature student "showcases," where students present ideas, programs, fundraisers, school-wide events, and much, much more. Our showcases range from anti-bullying programs to school spirit initiatives and everything in between. Click here for more information.

2016 State Conference

As the New Year gets closer, so does the 2016 State Conference! Please make sure to read and understand the 2016 States registration process, both Phase I and Phase II. For more information about the States registration process click here.

2016 MASC/MAHS Michigan Student Leadership Awards

MASC/MAHS State Awards are available for your student groups to submit. A great idea is putting together a school “award committee” to review and plan on submitting awards that best fit your schools accomplishments. With 9 different award categories, we have something for every member school! Take a closer look at the awards types, rubrics and submission requirements here.

The deadline for award submissions is March 7th.
