2018 SASTA Award Nominations are now open!

There are many great teachers out there that SASTA would like to acknowledge, but often they don’t get nominated for Awards because teaching is a very busy job and people don’t get the time to fill in nomination forms. Start thinking now! Alert your Principal. There are a number of Awards for SASTA members.

Award categories include: 

  • SASTA Medal
  • Helen Castle Memorial Scholarship
  • Credit Union SA / SASTA Outstanding Teacher Awards
