The Impact of the Kazanjian Awards Program on Winners.
Dawson, George G.
A questionnaire developed to assess the impact of the Kazanjian Awards Program on the winners was mailed to the recipients of first, second, third, fourth, and honorable mention awards. A total of 134, or 61% of the winners replied. The effects of their having received an award are summarized and then broken down by teaching level (primary, intermediate, junior high, secondary, and higher education) and by degree of award. Responses deal with promotion, salary increases, recognition from employers, public recognition, publications, outside employment, effect of school curriculum, effect on winner's teaching, assistance to other educators, participation in council or center programs in economic education, and interest in awards programs. Representative comments from the winners are included. The award appears to have had a beneficial impact on the recipient, his associates, and his school. The importance that the winners attach to recognition of their achievement by their peers and school administration is particularly evident among the responses. (JH)
