Squire Award by the National Council of Teachers of English (NCTE).  One of NCTE’s most distinguished awards, it is given in recognition of outstanding service, not only to the stature and development of the council and the discipline which it represents, but also to the profession of education as a whole. It is reserved for an NCTE member who has had a transforming influence and has made a lasting intellectual contribution to the profession.
