NRPS Annual Awards Information

NRPS Awards are presented to individuals and agencies to recognize their professional and personal efforts in the fields of parks and recreation.  The Awards Committee receives and distributes all submissions which are then carefully reviewed by a panel of NRPS members from around the State. Their responsibility is to select the most outstanding nominations for recognition. Awards will be presented at the 2019 NRPS Conference Awards Banquet the MontBleu Resort in South Lake Tahoe. Award submissions are due by Thursday, March 1, 2019. 

This year, we will be taking submissions online. We recommend you gather all your submission material and write any descriptions or narratives prior to visiting the awards submission form online. You will not be able to stop and restart your submission, it must be completed in one sitting.
