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 are presented at the annual NRPS Conference Awards Banquet during the annual conference.
