About the Award
The Child Welfare Exemplary Service Award was developed in early 2015 by the Center for Advanced Studies in Child Welfare (CASCW) in order to recognize Minnesota child welfare supervisors and front-line workers in public, tribal, and private child-serving agencies for exemplary service to children and families. CASCW selects the award recipient using a nomination process. Any worker or supervisor who meets the nomination criteria may be nominated for the award.
Outstanding nominees will demonstrate a commitment to engaging families, engagement in strengths-based work with families, a focus on reducing disparities in the child welfare system, and utilization of research-supported practice.
