ECAWA recognises members who make an outstanding contribution as educators and leaders with two annual awards:
the award for the ECAWA Educator of the Year and
the award for the ECAWA Leader of the Year.
The recipients of these awards become the WA nominees for the Australian Council for Computers in Education (ACCE) and the Australian Computer Society (ACS) National Educator of the Year Award and Award for Outstanding Leadership in the use of Information and Communication Technology in Education.
From time to time ECAWA also nominates members for awards offered by other bodies.
