More on the Judith Holm Awards
The award goes to final-year students in social-work master’s programs based on the judging of a paper which recounts the process of a field-placement intervention and demonstrates readiness to enter professional practice. The program is named for Judith Holm, MSS, BCD, of Shaker Heights, Ohio, first President of the American Board of Examiners in Clinical Social Work (the sister organization of ACSWA). This national competition is judged by faculty from graduate schools of social work, by practitioners, and by directors and staff of the American Clinical Social Work Association.
