The Lone Star Award is an award that recognizes effective and outstanding school counseling programs in the state of Texas. The Lone Star Award prepares school counselors to apply for the national ASCA RAMP award.

In 2016, the Lone Star State School Counselor Association developed a progressive awards system that includes three levels: Bronze, Silver and Gold. Each level is met with increased levels of rigor designed to elevate school counselor programs to national recognition through the American School Counselor Association, the RAMP award.

HOW TO APPLY

  • We have moved the awards to the Schoology Learning Management System (LMS). The State of Texas purchased Schoology for all districts to use, however districts could have chosen not to use Schoology if they were already using another LMS. You may not be aware that your district is using it because LMS’s are generally used by teachers. Please ask your principal if your district is using Schoology. If your district is using it, please find out how you can access your district account.
