The nomination period for the 2021 Adult Education Students Succeed Program is open. OTAN invites nominations of adult education learners who are successful as a result of the education received at California WIOA-funded adult education agencies. This is a great way to recognize the hard work that an outstanding student has completed in the pursuit of their personal, academic, and professional goals and aspirations.

To get started, visit the Adult Education Students Succeed website at  From the home page, you can read stories and watch videos from previous years by clicking on the Students tab on the website. You can also explore stories from specific adult education agencies and programs by clicking on the Schools and Programs tabs.

To learn how to nominate a student for the program, click on the Nomination tab. Pay special attention to the five-point rubric at the bottom of the page that will be used to score each nomination that the panel will read. A nomination must secure a minimum score for the student's story and photo to be included on the website. Students who get the top two scores from all nominations will each have a video story produced and will be invited to the 2021 ASCA Leadership Summit in November for a special recognition honoring successful students across California.

To nominate a student, scroll to the very bottom of the Nomination page and click on the link to complete an online nomination form. Once the nomination is successfully submitted, you will receive confirmation from OTAN. The last day to nominate a student for consideration is Thursday, April 15.

If you have any questions or need further assistance, please contact us at or call our office at 916-228-2580. We look forward to learning more about the inspiring students you have helped at your adult ed agencies!
