History of the IC3 Awards
The IC3 Awards were created by the IC3 Movement to recognize outstanding work in the field of career and college counseling. With the intention to inspire and encourage, not to compare or compete, IC3 is proud to celebrate counseling champions aligned with the mission of career and college counseling in every school.
The first IC3 Awards ceremony took place at the 2nd Annual IC3 Conference in 2017. Aimed at felicitating schools, counselors and universities that stand out for their contributions to the field of career and college counseling, the IC3 Awards have become a highly anticipated fixture at the Annual IC3 Conference every year. Categories in the 2017, 2018, 2019 and 2020 ceremonies included Emerging Counselor Award, Counselor of the Year, Award for Counseling-Based Approach to Student Recruitment/Admissions, and the Molly Abraham Lifetime Achievement Award.
Each year, awardees and nominees have been recognized and celebrated at the IC3 Awards ceremony.
Expanded to include more award categories in 2021, the IC3 Awards continue to honor exceptional contributions to the field of career and college counseling across high schools and counselors, universities and university representatives, and organizations. Awardees are selected by a jury, and announced annually.
