Distinguished Service Award

The Distinguished Service Award (DSA) was established by the American Home Economics Association (AHEA) Foundation in 1979 as a living tribute to members of AHEA (now AAFCS) to recognize superior achievements in family and consumer sciences, outstanding contributions to the family and consumer sciences profession, and sustained association leadership at both state and national levels. A list of prior recipients may be found here.

Nominations are due August 27th, and 2019 DSA recipients will be honored at the 110th Annual Conference in St. Louis, Missouri, June 23-26 2019.
