Nominations for the 
11th Annual African American Student Achievement & Excellence Awards are now open!!
Welcome new and previous nominators and partners!
We have designed a new exclusively-online award nomination form to simplify and speed up the nomination process. We hope this process will make it easier to nominate students from your computer or tablet.
This year we have expanded the awards to include all of Alameda County and High School Juniors who will transition to 12th grade in Fall 2015.
With this expansion, the categories, requirements, and criteria have been updated.
This will be a more competitive process in the past as space is limited.
Be sure to get your nominations in before the deadline.
Cultivating a Brilliant and Resilient College Bound Community


For ten years, AAREA has convened the African American Student Achievement and Excellence Awards (AASAE Awards). This event was created to provide encouragement, motivation, and honor to African American students who have strived and achieved in various fields. The AASAE Awards affirm the worth and dignity of African-American students, and acknowledges and recognizes the support of parents, family and community in the lives of children.  Students transitioning to middle and high school are recognized along with high school juniors and graduating seniors.


The 11th Annual African American Student Achievement Awards will take place on April 25, 2015 at Chabot College. This year’s event will honor the achievements of 500 African American students throughout Alameda County. Attendance is expected to exceed 1,000 people to include families, educators, political officials, and community/business partners.




We invite teachers, administrators, school staff, community and religious leaders, coaches, mentors, and educational professionals to nominate and recognize outstanding African American youth in Alameda County for the African American Student Achievement & Excellence Awards.
