Accept a Nomination

​The 2019 completed application and letters of recommendation submission deadline has been extended to Tuesday, December 4, 2018 at 5:00 p.m. Central Time.

If you have been nominated for a 2019 award, start your application today!  The three people you choose to write letters of recommendation will not be able to submit their letters until you have completed and submitted your application.  We recommend that you complete and submit your application at least two weeks in advance of the deadline so that your recommenders have time to upload their letters.  Once you've submitted, your recommenders will receive an email with instructions on how to submit their comments. A submitted application is not considered complete until all three letters of recommendation have been submitted by the recommenders.  An incomplete application will not be considered for an award.  

Nominees will be sent a link to the Kohl Outstanding Wisconsin Leadership Award online application.   In order to provide all nominees an equal opportunity to be considered, they must follow all instructions in the application. 

Nominees will be evaluated on the following:
1.  Personal educational philosophy;
2.  How they work to raise achievement for all students;
3.  Innovative projects/programs;
4.  Commitment to their community;
5.  Unrealized goals for their schools or professional development;
6.  Positive impact on students and staff

Each nominee must submit three letters of recommendation. Letters should enhance the nominee’s application by illustrating specific examples of the principal's skills and contributions, knowledge, or attributes emphasized in the application materials.


 Herb Kohl Outstanding Wisconsin Leadership Award applications for 2019 must be completed and letters of recommendation submitted online on or before December 4, 2018 5:00 p.m. Central Time.
